Jose Mourinho left Son Heung-Min embarrassingly hanging after Tottenham victory on Tuesday. Spurs came back from 0-2 to win 4-2.
Jose Mourinho’s life as Tottenham head coach has been almost perfect. After leading them to their first away victory with a win against West Ham last weekend, the Portuguese fashioned a brilliant comeback in their Champions league encounter against Olympiakos.
The thrilling match saw Tottenham go down 2-0 before Dele Alli scored a goal near half-time to slash the difference by half. Spurs then scored 3 more goals in the second half saw Tottenham clinch the match with the score line 4-2 in their favour.
After the match, the players were naturally exhilarated with the result and celebrated the victory. Son Heung-Min tried to approach his manager Jose Mourinho with a high five. However, the Portuguese remained oblivious to the South Korean star leaving Son awkwardly standing there.

A fan has spotted a hilarious incident from the footage in Spurs TV and has posted it on social media. The video shows Son walk over to Jose Mourinho looking to celebrate with him. However, an unaware Mourinho walks to the Olympiakos goal keeper instead.
Son remains stood there waiting for his manager to acknowledge him but Mourinho goes to another Olympiakos player. A determined Son persists but it is not until someone pointed out the Spurs forward that Mourinho finally acknowledged him with a cheeky smile and hugged Son.

The Special one has scripted two victories in his first two matches as Tottenham manager. In his first match, he led them to their first away victory since January 2019. Daniel Levy will hope that Mourinho will take the side back to top 4. They are currently 10th after 13 matches and will play Bournemouth tomorrow.
