Jose Mourinho Invites Heroic Tottenham Ball Boy To Lunch With The Squad
Jose Mourinho has invited the Spurs ball-boy into the team's pre-match meal after his heroics on Tuesday night.
Callum Hynes was the man of the moment in the 4-2 victory over Olympics when his quick thinking helped Harry Kane and Spurs level matters in the 50th minute.
When the ball went out of play, the 15-year old wasted no time in feeding right-back Serge Aurier a second ball, allowing him to send Lucas Moura down the right.
Moura carried the ball forward before playing the back to Kane, who pulled Spurs level.
Mourinho immediately embraced the youngster after the goal and though he wasn't able to celebrate with the team after the game because he had a maths exam the day after, he will be spending time with the squad.

He's still in disbelief over his assist on Tuesday and now the lad's week just keeps on getting better.
"Jose didn't have to do that. It was really nice of him to come over to me. It's made my day, my life, really!" Callum told the official Tottenham Hotspur website in his first interview following on from his heroics.
"I love Spurs and it was an amazing moment I'll never forget."
Mourinho was a ball boy himself long before he became a serial winner in the dug-out and showered the young lad with praise.

"I love intelligent ball boys like I was. I was a brilliant ball boy as a kid...He reads the game, understands the game and made an important assist.
"He's not there just to look to the stands, lights or scarves. He's living the game and playing it very well."
