Though United won 3-1 courtesy of goals from Fred, Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood, Solskjaer was not happy with his side having a goal disallowed in the first half.
Cavani had the ball in the net following a lovely team move but it was chalked off after a VAR review deemed Scott McTominay to have fouled Heung-Min Son in the build-up.
McTominay's hand flicked out at the South Korean, who was down on the turf for a number of minutes before going on to open the scoring.
A fuming Solskjaer felt the former Bayer Leverkusen man had "conned" the referee and used an interesting analogy.
The 48-year-old 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."
Kristiansund midfielder, Noah Solskjaer, 20, was interviewed by the local newspaper in the Norwegian town and reassured everyone he doesn't go hungry.
"I always get food. I can assure everyone about that," he confirmed to Tidens Krav.
Solskjaer's eldest son, who made his debut for his hometown club against United in a pre-season game back in 2019, also joked that Jose Mourinho was probably trying to deflect from the result in his response to the man who replaced him at Old Trafford.
Speaking post-match, the Portuguese manager didn't like Solskjaer's comments one bit and says he told him as much.
"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," Mourinho said.
"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?
"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."
