Tottenham: Fans react as Toby Alderweireld credits ball boy Callum Hynes for assist to Dele Alli

Lots of Tottenham fans have been reacting to an Instagram story from Toby Alderweireld, who appeared to credit Jose Mourinho’s new best friend for his assist to Dele Alli on Saturday.

The Alderweireld long-ball to Alli combination is back, and so is the positivity around Tottenham.

Mourinho has brought a renewed sense of life to the club, and thanks in no small part to his partner in crime – ball boy Callum Hynes.

The 15 year-old Spurs fan was invited to the team’s pre-match meal before the 3-2 win over Bournemouth, and then received a fist bump from Mourinho following Alli’s opening goal against the Cherries.

Alderweireld has also joined in on the fun, joking on Instagram that Hynes suggested he find Alli with a ‘long ball over the top’, per Alasdair Gold.

The young supporter appears to have become somewhat of a good luck charm for Mourinho and the club, and lots of fans have been reacting to Alderweireld’s post.

You can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below, where one fan even suggested Hynes is in line to succeed Mourinho!
