Mourinho lashes out over ‘moral honesty’, bread & cheese after Man United boss’s Son jibes – and star looks close to tears (VIDEO)

Spurs boss Jose Mourinho bizarrely railed at the father of South Korean star Son and Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after his side’s damaging defeat on Sunday while the player was close to tears.

The drama was far from over after United made a final 3-1 comeback at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, picking up a 40th-minute Son Heung-min half-time deficit to win 3-1 in the Premier League.

United striker Edinson Cavani scored a hard-ruled goal after a VAR check after midfielder Scott McTominay hit Son in the face in advance.

That led United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to claim that “the game is absolutely over” and complained that the referee had been “betrayed” by Son who had duly given Tottenham the lead.

🗣 “If my son stays down like this for 3 minutes and needs 10 friends to help him get up, he won’t get any food.” Ole Gunnar Solskjaer thought Heung-min Son’s reaction to the ridiculous ridiculous

“If that was my son and he stays downstairs and he needs his friends to help him get up, he won’t get any food because it’s embarrassing,” Solskjaer replied curiously in his interview after the game.

“If that’s a clear and obvious mistake, it’s an obvious mistake to look at. It was a perfect target.

“Unfortunately the referee decided we weren’t going to play football, or VAR probably made up their minds. I’m absolutely shocked if that’s a foul.”

Mourinho was angry. “Let me tell you something,” growled the irritable Tottenham boss. “I’m very, very surprised that you don’t ask me about the comments Ole made about Sonny.

“And I already told Ole that because I only met him a few minutes ago. If it is me and I tell player AB or C from another club: ‘If it were my son I wouldn’t have dinner tonight give ‘or something How about the reaction?

“It’s very, very sad. I find it 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 way you treat others.”

The cursing coach seemed to have taken Solskjaer’s remarks literally. “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 always have to feed your children, it doesn’t matter what they do.

“If you have to steal to feed your children, you steal. I’m very, very disappointed and as we say in Portugal, bread is bread and cheese is cheese. I’ve already told Ole what I think about his comments.”

Solskjaer said he had “the utmost respect” for Mourinho while Son appeared devastated by a loss that left Spurs in seventh place and likely not to qualify for the Champions League.

Once the Premier League leaders, Spurs are six points ahead of fourth with six games remaining.

“It’s a really sad afternoon,” he said, looking down and grimacing while looking heartbroken.

“I really don’t mind [my] Goal. I really wanted to win, especially after the last game [at Newcastle] When I came back from an injury, we led and pulled.

“I really, really wanted to win – I really do. There are [seven] Games left: I know it’s always easy to say, “Let’s be positive, we’ll do our best”.

“I want to finish this season really well, I really do. We have to get results six points behind the top four and wait for the other teams to lose points. We have to do our best and take responsibility.”

“I know it seems crazy or unusual for me to be really down, but football is about results. If we win, I’m really happy. If we lose, I’m down two or three days. We have to as next jump back. ” Friday [at Everton]. “
