Even Jose Mourinho Had To Celebrate The Tottenham Ball Boy For This Assist
Tottenham Hotspurs avoided what would have been a second Champions League disaster at home after coming back from down two to Olympiacos to win 4-2. The equalizing goal, though, came from an unlikely hero.
Watch the ball boy quickly react and give Danny Rose the ball for a quick throw-in to Lucas Moura, who set up Harry Kane for the tap in.

Jose Mourinho, who celebrated with the Tottenham ball boy after the goal, said in his post-match interview that he wanted to celebrate with the ball boy after the game as well, but couldn't find him.
"To do that, you have to be a very good ball boy," Mourinho said. "(He) understands the game, reads the game, isn't there just to look to the stands or the lights or the scarves. He's there living the game and playing the game very, very well. In the end, I wanted to invite him to the dressing room to celebrate with us but he disappeared."
