Manchester United scored first but their goal was disallowed with Mc Tomminny adjudged to have fouled Tottenham’s Heung-min Son in the build-up to the goal. An explosive row has emerged between Mourinho and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over the disallowed goal saga.
In the goal buildup, Mc Tomminny caught Son,s face, leaving the South Korean on the floor for the whole duration of the goal.
The match referee was informed the whole incident by the VAR, and after checking the pitch-side monitor, he overturned Cavani’s goal. He latter stated: “It wasn’t part of McTominay’s natural running movement and was careless.”
Tottenham however took the lead and were 1-0 up during halftime break. The second half saw United score thrice to win the game but despite that, Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was still absolutely furious at full-time.
Ole Gunnar Solskjær said:
“We weren’t conned, the referee was.
“The game has gone. The game has absolutely gone. We shouldn’t be conned.
“I have to say, if my son stays down for three minutes and he needs his 10 mates to help him up, he won’t get any food. We weren’t conned, the referee was.”
Tottenham Coach Jose Mourinho was not pleased with Ole Gunnar Solskjaaer’s perspective of the game. Taking the whole matter as personal, He said:
“In relation to that I just want to say Son is very lucky that his father is a better person than Ole.
“Because I think a father you always have to feed. Doesn’t matter what they do. If you have to steal to feed your kids, you steal.
“I’m very, very disappointed and because with me, like we say in Portugal, bread is bread and cheese is cheese, I told Ole already what I think about his comments.
“And I have to tell you that I’m very, very disappointed that in five, six, seven questions you ignore the dimension of that comment.”
