Manchester United vs Tottenham, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer vs Jose Mourinho, Heung-Min Son, Chris Kavanagh, Edison Cavani disallowed goal, won’t get any food

Jose Mourinho has clashed with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, angrily hitting back after the Manchester United boss claimed Heung-Min Son “conned” the referee.

Solskjaer said United were sparked into life by the injustice of seeing Edinson Cavani’s opening goal controversially ruled out as the Red Devils roared back to beat Tottenham 3-1 on Sunday.

United came from behind to win for the ninth time in the league this season as second-half goals from Fred, Cavani and Mason Greenwood cancelled out Son Heung-min’s opener.

However, Solskjaer still took aim at Son for his role in the goal United had ruled out.

Paul Pogba and Cavani combined brilliantly for the Uruguayan to drill the ball low between the legs of Hugo Lloris on 36 minutes.

But a VAR review by referee Chris Kavanagh resulted in a Tottenham free-kick for a foul by Scott McTominay on Son in the build-up.

The Scottish international made minimal contact with Son’s face as he swatted the South Korean aside.

“The game is absolutely gone if that’s a clear and obvious error,” said Solskjaer.

“It was a perfectly good goal. I think that kickstarted us, the performance from then till the end of the game was so much better.

“We shouldn’t be conned. I have to say, if my son stays down like this for three minutes and needs his 10 mates to help him up, he won’t get any food. We weren’t (conned), the referee was.”

Those comments did not sit well with Mourinho, who fired back at Solskjaer and claimed Son “is very lucky” he does not have the United boss as a father.

“Let me tell you something. I am very, very surprised that after the comments that Ole made on Sonny, you don’t ask me about it,” he said.

“And I told Ole already this, because I met him just a few minutes ago. If it’s me, telling that player A B or C from another club, ‘If it was my son I wouldn’t give him dinner tonight,’ or something like that, what would be the reaction?s

“It is very, very sad. I think it’s really sad that you don’t ask me about it. It’s really sad that you don’t have the moral honesty to treat me the same way you treat others.

“I just want to say, Sonny is very lucky that his father is a better person than Ole, because I think a father – I am a father – you have to always feed your kids, it doesn’t matter what they do.

“If you have to steal to feed your kids, you steal. I am very, very disappointed, and like we say in Portugal bread is bread and cheese is cheese, I told Ole already what I think about his comments.”

The disallowed goal did not go down well with Sky Sports’ pundits, who claimed it was “embarrassing” and “spoiling football.”

“I’m amazed. If this is a foul, we should all go home,” Roy Keane said.

“It’s bizarre for a player like Son to be rolling around. It’s embarrassing. It’s not just Son – Rashford did it too about 10 minutes earlier – but that can’t be a foul. The referees are under pressure, they’re now questioning themselves and he’s got it wrong.”

“This is not football anymore,” Micah Richards added.

“I can’t recognise the game anymore. It’s a ridiculous decision and it’s spoiling football. The players didn’t help, surrounding him.”
