Jose Mourinho throws more shade at Man Utd after latest penalty incident

Tottenham manger Jose Mourinho has thrown more shade at Manchester United and their manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after a war of words between the pair over the weekend.

Mourinho and Solskjaer traded jibes following their respective results over the weekend, with saw one man extremely happy at the final whistle, while one was left fuming.

A jubilant Solskjaer, who had just watched his side luckily beat Brighton 3-2 thanks to a penalty given by VAR after the final whistle, mocked Mourinho’s complaints last week about the size of the goalposts.

The Portuguese coach pointed out the issue when his side travelled to North Macedonia last Thursday, and they were ultimately changed by UEFA.

But Solskjaer, who watched on as Brighton hit the woodwork a whopping five times, aimed a soft jab at Mourinho’s complaints.

“We have to be grateful Jose (Mourinho) is not here to measure the goalposts,” said the Norwegian. “It might have been smaller goals.”

However, Mourinho bit back as his side were incredibly unlucky not to come away from their trip to Newcastle with all three points after a highly controversial penalty given against Eric Dier.

The Spurs gaffer this time took aim at United’s record of winning penalties, which stood at a huge 14 last season.

“At some clubs, even after the last whistle, it’s possible for something important to happen,” Mourinho said.

Referencing the joke about the goalposts, he added: “I know the goalposts are fine.

Mourinho insisted on the goals being replaced after being told they were too small by goalkeepers Joe Hart and Hugo Lloris

“I think Ole yesterday was so happy and surprised with what happened to his team that he had a joke, but I understand that for him the dimensions of the goalpost are not important.

”For him, what is important is the dimensions of the 18-yard box. He would never accept to play with a 17-yard box I think he would prefer a 22-yard box. For him would be better.”
