Jose Mourinho angrily hits back at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over Heung-Min Son food remarks

Published

on

Jose Mourinho has reacted angrily to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after the Manchester United boss hit out at Heung-Min Son following the visitors’ 3-1 win at Tottenham.

Solskjaer complained Son had “conned” the referee with his part in United’s disallowed goal during the first half.

The United boss told Sky Sports: “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.”

But speaking in his own post-match press conference, an angry Mourinho responded: “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.

“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?

Mourinho reacted angrily to comments Solskjaer made about Heung-Min Son

“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.”

Roy Keane, Micah Richards and Jamie Redknapp were shocked by the referee’s decision to disallow Edinson Cavani’s goal for a foul in the build up by Scott McTominay.

Sky Sports’ Roy Keane: “I’m amazed. If this is a foul, we should all go home. 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.

Sky Sports’ Micah Richards: “This is not football anymore. I can’t recognise the game anymore. It’s a ridiculous decision and it’s spoiling football. The players didn’t help, surrounding him.”

Sky Sports’ Jamie Redknapp: “That’s what you do in football, you’re always trying to use your arms as leverage to get away from people. Son tries to grab him and [McTominay] tries to push him away; he just flicks him. It’s never a foul.”

Dave Jones: “The PGMOL have said it wasn’t part of McTominay’s natural running movement and was careless.”

Westbrook ties Robertson for most NBA triple-doubles all-time

Published

LOS ANGELES – Washington’s Russell Westbrook notched the 181st triple-double of his career on Saturday, tying Oscar Robertson for the most in NBA history.

Westbrook  matched Robertson with his 10th assist of the night in the third quarter of the Wizards’ game against the Indiana pacers in Indianapolis.

Through three quarters Westbrook had 24 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists, but the Wizards trailed 101-92.

It’s not the first time Westbrook has etched his name alongside that of Robertson, who played in the NBA from 1960-74.

Westbrook was playing for the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2017 when he broke Robertson’s single-season record with 42 triple-doubles — recording double digits in three major statistical categories in a feat that has become a measuring stick of all-around excellence.

Los Angeles Lakers great Magic Johnson is third on the NBA’s all-time triple-double list with 138 and Jason Kidd is fourth on 107.

Current Lakers superstar LeBron James is the only other active player in the top five with 99 career triple-doubles.

Raptors cannot wait to get out of Tampa?

Published

on

The Toronto Raptors have not exactly gotten the warmest welcome in their temporary home this season. Now it sounds like they are itching to get the heck out of Dodge.

Josh Lewenberg of TSN Sports reported this week that there are Raptors players and other members of the organization who cannot wait to leave Tampa, Fla. They are said to be counting down the days until they can pack their bags, take their families and leave on May 17.

The Raptors have their last regular-season contest on May 16. They are four games out of the play-in tournament zone with five games left, meaning they are all but certain to miss the playoffs and see an early end to their season.

Tampa has played home to the Raptors this year with Toronto unavailable due to COVID-19 restrictions. The partnership has been frosty at best with the Raptors even recently getting booed by the local fans. It is probably safe to say that there will not be any NBA basketball in Tampa after this season.

Manchester United planning £70m double sale to fund Erling Haaland move – Reports

Published

on

Manchester United are hoping to raise funds from player sales to help finance a move for Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland.

According to We All Follow United via Express, the Red Devils are planning to sell Jesse Lingard and either David de Gea or Dean Henderson, to raise £70m in the summer. The money will then be invested in bringing the Norwegian striker to Old Trafford.

Manchester United have reportedly made Haaland their number one target ahead of the summer, but Dortmund have slapped an astronomical fee on the player. The Norwegian has been on a brilliant run of form since his move to the Bundesliga side. Haaland has scored 47 goals in 48 games since joining Dortmund from RB Leipzig in January of 2020.

Haaland is the target-man Ole Gunnar Solskjaer desires at Old Trafford, even though the player has already rejected Manchester United on two occasions in the past.

However, the Black and Yellows want a fee of over £100m for the Norwegian, which could be a problem for the Red Devils. Interestingly, Haaland’s £70m release clause will only come into effect in the summer of 2022.

Solskjaer has already revealed that Manchester United will not be able to spend freely in the transfer market due to the financial repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic. As such, the Red Devils are planning to raise funds from the sales of Jesse Lingard and one of their goalkeepers.

The Englishman has impressed while on loan with West Ham United and could be allowed to leave for around £20m. The Hammers are reportedly desperate to sign the player on a permanent deal, which will work in Manchester United’s favor.

The Red Devils could also sell one of De Gea and Henderson in the summer, with the Englishman currently valued at £50m. Paul Pogba could also be allowed to leave unless he signs a contract extension at the end of the season. Manchester United, however, are eager to retain the Frenchman.

Funds raised from player sales will help the Red Devils compete with the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea, who are also monitoring Haaland.
