HE tried hard to convince us that it wasn’t all about him.Jose Mourinho’s entrance had been self-consciously coy, in-keeping with his affected humility since taking this job.4 Jose Mourinho went from panic to manic on the touchline as Tottenham completed a comeback from a two-goal deficitBut as Tottenham rescued a two-goal deficit and qualified for the Champions League knock-out stages, their new manager couldn’t help himself.First came the trademark brutal early substitution — the sort of thing a young Joe Cole used to have nightmares about at Chelsea — when Eric Dier was hauled off in the 29th minute with Spurs 2-0 down.Then came a wonderful example of Mourinho’s strange professional fixation with the ballboy community — as he high-fived and hugged the lad who swiftly fed Serge Aurier for the throw-in which led to Harry Kane’s equaliser.Mourinho, with his obsessions over fine margins, has an awful lot of history with the ballboys.He once told one of Crystal Palace’s retrievers he risked being punched by a player over his tardiness at returning the ball during a Chelsea defeat at Selhurst Park.And Leicester’s ballboys were once described as a ‘disgrace to the Premier League’ after another defeat.But while at Manchester United, the Special One felt the Old Trafford ball- retrieval team was too fast when his team were trying to run down the clock, and had them all replaced as a result.4 Jose Mourinho high-fived a ball boy after he tossed the ball back to the players before they scored a quick goalCredit: BT SportTottenham’s troupe, however, were like a rapid-response unit — and proved an instant hit for the new manager.When Spurs won a throw close to Mourinho’s dug-out, the nearest ballboy swiftly supplied Aurier for a quick throw to Lucas Moura, which wrong-footed the Olympiakos defence.The cross came in for Kane to steer home and make it 2-2 five minutes into the second half.Mourinho instantly high-fived the lad, embraced him and offered words of thanks.It was just the sort of endearing photo opportunity he’d have dreamt off as he attempted to win over a sceptical Spurs support during his first home match in charge.Jose Mourinho says he wanted to invite the heroic Spurs ballboy to the dressing room after the match but couldn’t find himBefore kick-off, there was no fanfare of any kind.There was no announcement of the Portuguese’s name over the PA system, no waving to the crowd, the new Tottenham manager simply slipped past a mob of photographers and sheepishly took his seat in the dug-out.The Spurs supporters did not sing his name, as they had done after the final whistle at West Ham.There was an Argentinian flag flying high behind him, in recognition of his predecessor Mauricio Pochettino and the odd placard thanking the sacked boss for the memories.Chairman Daniel Levy had timed the managerial change perfectly for Mourinho, with two fixtures he might have hand-picked.West Ham for a first Premier League away win, followed by Olmpiakos to secure qualification for the Champions League knock-out stage.4Yet this one didn’t turn out anything like as straightforward as we had imagined.Perhaps Mourinho and Spurs would have been better off making more of an occasion of his arrival, because the team started as if this was a friendly rather than a crunch European fixture.As a result, they were 2-0 down inside 19 minutes against the Group B whipping boys.First an attempted interception from Danny Rose — who is struggling for confidence right now — fell to Youssef El-Arabi, who went past a flailing Harry Winks and curled home powerfully from just outside area.Son Heung-min’s header from a Winks free-kick forced a fine save from Jose Sa.But then Spurs suffered a collective brain-fade as they attempted to defend a low corner and Ruben Semedo snuck in front of Toby Alderweireld to bundle it over the line.Mourinho, with a face like a slapped backside, immediately sent two of his subs to warm up.And before the half-hour, Dier was ruthlessly hooked to make way for Christian Eriksen.Jose Mourinho celebrates with Spurs ball boy after his quick thinking leads to Champions League equaliser4 Harry Kane put in a fine performance for Tottenham as Spurs qualified for the Champions League knock-out stagesCredit: ReutersSpurs had not looked like getting a foothold before they were gifted a goal in first-half injury-time.Aurier’s low centre was unthreatening but Yassine Meriah took an air-shot at it, leaving Dele Alli a simple task to score.Then came the Kane effort, with the assist from our heroic ballboy, before a thumping finish from Aurier and Kane’s glancing header from an Eriksen free-kick made sure of Tottenham’s progress.By the final whistle the place was buzzing. This is a theatre which feels perfect for the big European nights and Spurs may have a few more to look forward to this season now.Yet while Mourinho will mention his two Champions League triumphs approximately every 2½ minutes during the course of any conversation, it has been a decade since he last reached the final of this competition, with Inter Milan.He failed to do so with either Real Madrid, Manchester United or in his second spell at Chelsea.Like his old rival, Pep Guardiola, his Champions League record has become extremely modest in recent years.Jose Mourinho jokes about seeing his Olympiakos half-time team talk on the Amazon documentaryMOST READ IN SPORTTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battle’I ACCEPT’McGregor accepts Silva fight at UFC catchweight of 176lbs in huge super-fightTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramPicturedA CUT ABOVEMike Tyson shows two-inch cut ‘picked up in training’ ahead of boxing returnExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticIT’S…NOT TOMMY BOWETommy Bowe discovers someone has been impersonating him on TinderMAC DADDYTriple H wants McGregor v McMahon with winner getting rights to billionaire strutHe knows that winning this thing is probably Tottenham’s best chance of qualifying for next season, with Spurs so far adrift of the Premier League’s top four — nine points as it stands.Spurs reached last season’s final, of course, and anything can happen in knock-out football.It certainly helps when the manager ensures that everybody at their club is right on their toes — even the ballboys.Tweet @davekidd_
Dear Editor,Some people seem to feel that running a Government is a sole proprietor business – a one-man business – but this is so far from the truth.It is a known fact that a Party goes into an election with a manifesto which sells the party to the electorate. If the party wins, then it is a team effort comprised of persons who should have the ability to deliver on those promises. In addition, there are many advisors who are strategically appointed to assist these persons. The presidential elect not only gives guidance but takes guidance.In Guyana the coalition and the new kids on the block with their handful of supporters, some claiming to be disgruntled PPP members and supporters, are hammering away at the election of Mr Irfaan Ali as the PPP’s presidential candidate, making their repetitive rounds of personal attacks while claiming that he is “Jagdeo’s third term”.Bharrat Jagdeo has always been the focus of attack in and out of Office; his salary, his pension, his “mansion” as is claimed. Yet even the Prime Minister is now earning more than him and living the “Cadillac” lifestyle. This Government utilised great efforts and massive financial resources to ensure that he does not get a third term as President since they are mortally afraid of his sharp intellect and his topnotch statesmanship. The decision of the Caribbean did not deter or daunt his spirit. It must be recalled by Guyanese that after the PPP’s defeat by a one-seat majority, he rose from the ashes like the proverbial Phoenix and began a political crusade that was unrelenting in exposing the corruption and thievery of the coalition. His weekly press conferences were just as eagerly looked forward to as “Days of Our Lives”!Jagdeo’s relentless pursuit bore fruit and gave hope to the hopeless in this country which had begun to fall into the abyss of social and economic degradation. But while he did the Herculean task, some were waiting like hyenas to partake from the kill of the lion. A few of these were in the media headlines for all the wrong reasons! Now he is being vilified once again by those heartless opportunists who never even bat an eyelid for their country. But I know that it will never derail his focus of ensuring the good life for his people!As I recall, when Donald Ramotar became the presidential candidate twice for the PPP, there were no cries, wails and gnashing of teeth. He was not seen as the surrogate or puppet of Jagdeo.It was acceptable because they knew that they could outmanoeuvre him at any time. In fact, they dubbed him the “Lame Duck”!The then Opposition took full advantage of this and Nagamootoo tabled a no-confidence motion which saw his Government’s downfall.Ramotar was the ‘perfect’ opponent and the coalition wants another one. However, when one listened to the debates and presentations of Irfaan Ali, it is evident that he has what it takes not only to run this country but to destroy the corruption posse and thwart the efforts of the APNU/AFC to bring down his Government. He has that charisma, courage and competence and enough has been said about his achievements as a Minister. Let them call it what they want but Irfaan Ali is no Donald Ramotar and will never be an easy walkover!As a member of the PPP, I am in total agreement with the election of any presidential candidate since I have full confidence in the ability of my Party to choose the best candidate.The Central Committee has 35 potential candidates from which one must be chosen. When I was with the Alliance for Change I had no problem with either Trotman of Ramjattan being the presidential candidate.When I joined the PPP I had no problem with Ramotar being the presidential candidate twice and today I have no problem with Irfaan Ali being the presidential candidate. Let us put Guyana first and focus on the removal of this corrupt Government. God Bless our presidential candidate and God Bless Guyana!Yours sincerely,Haseef YusufRDC CouncillorRegion Six
