VIDEO: Tottenham ball boy on dream day with his heroes

1 Comment

Tottenham ballboy Callum Hynes, 15, had the time of his life on Saturday as Jose Mourinho set up a VIP day for the Spurs fan.

In the video below watch on as Hynes details his incredible day, as he met Mourinho and the first team players, had lunch with them before the 3-2 win against Bournemouth and was even treated to a fist bump from the Special One during he victory.

Why the fuss?

In Tottenham’s UEFA Champions League game against Olympiacos last week Hynes, who has been a ballboy at Spurs over the last six seasons, threw the ball quickly to Serge Aurier and his throw-in allowed Lucas Moura to cross for Harry Kane to make it 2-2 early in the second half.

Hynes’ quick-thinking played a key moment in Spurs’ comeback from 2-0 down to win 4-2 as they reached the last 16 of the UCL, and new manager Mourinho hugged and congratulated him on his home debut and had high praise for Hynes after the game, as well as admitting he tried to find him so he could celebrate with the players.

Things worked out very well for Hynes in the end as the likes of Serge Aurier, Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Lucas Moura thanked him for his help in their comeback win.

What a lovely story as Mourinho has a chief ballboy to lead the way.
