Tottenham Hotspur’s victory over Aston Villa was nothing short of sensational as Heung-Min Son slotted home in the dying moments of the game to seal a 3-2 win for the away side.
Of course, it was heartbreak for the hosts but an incredible result for Jose Mourinho and his troops who closed the gap on fourth placed Chelsea in the process.
But the fans were quick to notice that the gaffer didn’t celebrate the strike as he was too focused on making the right tactical moves to see the game through.
And after the club’s official account released footage showing Mourinho’s reaction to the goal, many of the fans were simply buzzing with their coach.
He’s growing on me day by day. Serial winner & one of the greatest managers of all time. Can’t believe he’s ours

Many of them were suggesting that the footage serves to prove the Special One is a tactical mastermind who knows exactly what to do at any given moment.
The Portuguese coach can be seen scampering to make a substitution in the final seconds in order to preserve the lead. Amidst the chaos and euphoria of the last minute goal, Mourinho seemed to be the only one keeping a cool head.
Needless to say, many supporters absolutely loved that.
Precisely the reason he’s a shrewd manager
Doesn’t get carried away, knows he got business until 90+
