The Moment Jose Mourinho Awkwardly Left Son Heung-Min Hanging In The Tunnel
Jose Mourinho shared a very awkward moment with Son Heung-min after the Tottenham star tried to embrace him in the tunnel.
Spurs were in Champions League action on Tuesday against Olympiakos and conceded twice in the opening 20 minutes of the clash.
But Mourinho's men managed to mount a successful comeback and secured a stunning 4-2 victory to book their place in the Champions League knockout phase.
And Son tried to approach the Spurs boss after the match to celebrate his side's comeback victory at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
However, Mourinho seemed completely unaware of the 27-year-old South Korean star as he walked up to the Olympiakos shot-stopper and hugged him.

Son continued to persist with the 'Special One' before he walked off to another Olympiakos player and embraced him.
It was only after someone pointed out the Spurs forward that Mourinho put on a cheeky smile and hugged Son.
But one eagle-eyed fan spotted the incident on Spurs TV and posted the footage on social media.
Mourinho, 56, was appointed Spurs boss last week after the sacking of Mauricio Pochettino.
The former Manchester United and Chelsea boss started off his Spurs tenure with a 3-2 victory over West Ham last weekend.
And Spurs maintained their momentum with their comeback win against Olympiakos in the Champions League.
Mourinho dismissed the idea that he would have been interested in taking over at Arsenal before Unai Emery was sacked.
"You could put in front of me any club in the world and I would not move," he said.
"I'm so happy here that I could not even think about the possibility to go to another place.
"The facilities are the best I've ever seen and I've been in big clubs.
"It's not like I arrive here from small clubs and think, 'Wow.'
"I've been in big clubs. Chelsea, very good conditions, United the same, [Real] Madrid, Inter [Milan], the same. It's not like I've been in bad conditions, but here it's fantastic.
"It is a big club with the concept of a family and with everybody around me. Mr Levy is next door to me, his office next to mine.
"If I need him, he is there. If he needs me, I am there. The chief scout next door. I meet him every day. The academy boss three doors down. Everything is close.
"It's commitment. We arrive early in the morning, we leave late in the afternoon.
"I like very much this empathy and the way we are working. And, again, very, very important, I like the players."
Spurs will return to Premier League action today when they host Bournemouth for a 3pm kick-off UK time.
