"Dele done well to get that goal just before half-time and then we had the momentum".
"The first thing is that the most hard moment of the game for me was not when Olympiakos scored the first or the second goal, the most hard moment of the game for me was when I made the change in the first half", said Mourinho.
The Portuguese coach reacted by hooking defensive midfielder Dier with just 29 minutes played in favour of the more attacking talents of Christian Eriksen.
After the match, Mourinho praised the boy saying: "To do that, you have to be a very good ballboy".
Despite being run ragged by Olympiakos, who scored through Youssef El-Arabi and Ruben Semedo, Spurs pulled one back in first-half stoppage time when Dele Alli tapped in after Yassine Meriah completely missed the ball while attempting to clear.
Serge Aurier fired Spurs in front in the 73rd minute before Kane added his second to make it 4-2 in favour of the hosts to secure the impressive comeback win and all three points.
"I was a brilliant ballboy as a kid and this kid today was brilliant".
Zidane defends Bale after flag criticism
Madrid play Real Sociedad at the Santiago Bernabeu today, when Bale is likely to feel the frustration of the home supporters. And last week, he himself had admitted that he is more excited to play for his country than Real Madrid .
"The game at West Ham was very demanding and the pressures around my first match".
"In the end, I wanted to invite him to the dressing room to celebrate with us, but he disappeared".
And Kane put the seal on morale-boosting second half when he stooped to head home his 23rd goal of the season in as many games for club and country.
"Because he reads the game, he understands the game and he made an important assist so it's a good moment for him he'll never forget it".
"I hurt the player but hurt myself". We needed a second creative player who could play with Alli in an open triangle and not a closed triangle with Dier and Harry Winks.
"If you finish first you play against a second, if you finish second, the second match will be away, so to finish second diminishes the percentage chance (of going through)". "Maybe I should have gone for a couple of changes to give us some more energy".
Tottenham looked a different side after the break and Kane struck twice, either side of Serge Aurier's thumping effort, to take his Champions League tally to 20 in a record 24 games - beating the 26 it took Alessandro Del Piero to reach the mark.
