Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has put a stop to his spat with Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho and hailed the Portuguese’s achievements as a manager as they prepare to meet on the touchline this weekend at Old Trafford. The two bosses became embroiled in a back and forth after Solskjaer mocked Mourinho for measuring the goalposts ahead of Spurs’ Europa League play-off with Shkendija in Macedonia.
Mourinho configured that the posts were in fact five centimetres short of the official dimensions which resulted in them being changed before kick off.
Now Solskjaer has refused to fire back at his opposite number and claimed things got slightly out of hand over some harmless fun.
“We are in strange times,” Solskjaer said.
“Sometimes you must have a bit of fun. Couple of innocent comments. Jose very charismatic coach. I have enjoyed talking to him. He is a winner. I have ultimate respect for him and the results he has given to football.”
