Jose Mourinho Fist Bumps The Ball Boy After Spurs Opener

Jose Mourinho Fist Bumps The Ball Boy After Spurs Opener

Jose Mourinho's latest love affair continued on Saturday afternoon, not with managing Spurs but with the ball boy at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

On Tuesday the new Spurs boss praised the ball boy after he returned the ball quickly ahead of a goal during the north London team's 4-2 comeback win against Olympiakos in the Champions League.

The manager was full of praise for the kid after the match and on Saturday it continued as Dele Alli put Spurs 1-0 up in the first half of the league game against Bournemouth.

The former Manchester United boss didn't celebrate with players or coaches, instead fist bumping the ball boy.

It wasn't the first time that Mourinho and Callum Hynes had interacted on Saturday either. The Portuguese boss decided to offer the youngster the chance to have lunch with the players ahead of the match.

Not only that but Hynes won't be the last ball boy or girl to lunch with Jose and his team, with the 56-year-old confirming he'd be inviting one of them per home game to sit with them in their pre-match meal.

Alli was expected to shine under Mourinho, with the former Real Madrid boss really getting the best out of number 10s, and it's already started to prove correct.

The England midfielder came up with an assist in the manager's opening game against West Ham, and had an all round excellent performance, and scored against Olympiakos.

He really showed his best against Bournemouth, adding a second after the break, as the Premier League side looked to make it three from three under their new boss.

Before Mourinho's arrival the 23-year-old was out of form and had been left out of recent England squads, but he looks likely to return to Gareth Southgate's thoughts in time for the next internationals in March.

As for Jose it looks like things are looking really rosey in north London right now, the manager is all smiles and fist bumps, fans from many other clubs will be able to warn that it's unlikely to last very long.
