Jose Mourinho and Harry Kane welcome Tottenham ball boy to pre-match meal as reward for Champions League heroics


The Tottenham ball boy who helped Spurs beat Olympiakos joined the players for a pre-match meal on Saturday as a reward for his heroics.

Callum Hynes, 15, started the attack for Spurs’ equaliser during the 4-2 victory with some quick thinking, allowing Mourinho’s men to catch the Greeks cold from a throw.

The goal proved a turning point as Tottenham cancelled out the visitors’ two-goal advantage and went on to seal qualification to the knockout stages of the Champions League.

Mourinho, who high-fived the youngster in the immediate aftermath, then went on to praise Hynes in his post-match press conference.

And the Spurs manager came good on his promise to bring the kid along to a pre-match meal, even taking the time to introduce him to the players.

Hynes could be seen shaking hands with the likes of Toby Alderweireld and Heung-min Son before sitting down for a chat with Davinson Sanchez over some grub.

The teenager, who spent the rest of Tuesday night revising for a maths exam, has described his assist as totally unforgettable.

“You can see from my smile it was just unbelievable,” the ball boy told Tottenham’s official website.

“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! I love Spurs and it was an amazing moment I’ll never forget.”
