Jose Mourinho left Hueng-Min Son hanging as the forward desperately tried to high-five the new Tottenham Hotspur boss after the win over Olympiacos.
The South Korea international was clearly hoping to get some recognition after the Champions League victory, but was left looking a tad silly.
The hilarious footage from the tunnel of the Tottenham Hotspur stadium shows Son following Mourinho around with his arm stretched out in the hope of getting a high five.
After shaking the hands of pretty much everyone else in the squad, the ‘Special One’ finally sees the striker and embraces him.
Harry Kane scored a second half double to spare Mourinho’s blushes in his first home game since replacing Mauricio Pochettino to seal a 4-2 win.
Spurs made it three wins out of three for the Portuguese on Saturday with a 3-2 victory over Bournemouth.
Mourinho wants his Tottenham side to stay in touch with Chelsea before their blockbusting Premier League match later this month.
Spurs were 12 points behind Mourinho’s former club and looking out of Champions League contention when he took the job 10 days ago, but back-to-back Premier League wins and successive losses for Chelsea have seen that gap cut to six.
Chelsea visit the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on December 22 for what is sure to be an intriguing clash and Mourinho wants his side to still be within touching distance.
Spurs face Manchester United away, Burnley at home and Wolves away before then, while Chelsea host Aston Villa and Bournemouth, with a trip to Everton in between.
“We play Chelsea at the end of December, if the game was tomorrow, we would play them with six points difference, it would be a fantastic situation to play them,” Mourinho said after his side beat Bournemouth 3-2 on Saturday.
“But we play them in the end of December. We have to keep close, as close as possible. But we have a lot to work and a lot to improve.”
