Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's son Noah has insisted he "always gets food", as he offered some comments on the row between his father and Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho.

United boss Solskjaer suggested he would not have given his son any food as a punishment if he had fallen to the ground like Tottenham forward Heung-Min Son in a clash with Scott McTominay in Sunday's Premier League game.

The incident saw United have a goal ruled out after a VAR review, with Solskjaer unhappy with Son's actions as he suggested the South Korean forward has made the most of the incident.

"I have to say, if my son stays down like this for three minutes and gets 10 of his mates around him… if he gets that in the face from one of his other mates and he needs 10 of his mates to help him up, he won't get any food," Solskjaer said.

Mourinho was quick to respond to that snipe after his side's 3-1 defeat as he said: "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.

"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 to feed your kids, it doesn't matter what they do."

It's safe to say Solskjaer was not actually proposing the removal of food from his children, but his 20-year-old son Noah was inevitably asked about the incident in Norway.

Noah, who plays for Norwegian side Kristiansund BK, was quick to insist he was never left to stave by his father, as he offered up these comments to local newspaper Tidens Krav.

"I always get food, I can assure everyone about that," he confirmed. "[Team-mate] Max [Williamsen] asked me if I had been given food when he met me before training. I have never been lying down the way Son did.

"Mourinho probably just wanted to take the focus away from the fact that they had lost."
