Mourinho became the main character of the series.

One of the storylines is devoted to building a relationship between the coach and one of the leaders of Tottenham, Dele Alli.

So, on the very first day, Mourinho accused the midfielder of being lazy and promised to become a "pain in his ass", but then clarified his position.

“Sir Alex Ferguson gave me one good piece of advice in my two and a half years at Manchester United: take and buy Allie.

Still, he trains poorly, and we must find the right motivation for him, ”said the Portuguese.

He also admitted that he does not understand how in one period you can be a professional in your field, and in another - turn into a party-goer.

According to Mourinho, Alli will regret greatly if in the end she cannot achieve everything that she could.

In addition, the film shows that the coach and the club's management tried to keep another leading performer Christian Eriksen, but he chose to leave for Inter.

The agent of the Dane is called the culprit, who allegedly completely controls his ward and did not want to conduct a dialogue with Tottenham.

The footballer's act was highly appreciated by the former press attaché of the Russian national team Ilya Kazakov.

According to the journalist, he has not met players of the national team level who would refuse to participate in charity.

“Another thing is that they usually want to provide targeted assistance in order to be sure that this is not a money scam.

I know there are two ways of looking at player charity.

Someone thinks that such things should be done in silence.

Someone is sure that this can be an example to follow.

It seems to me that we need to talk about this.

The second opinion is closer to me, ”Kazakov wrote in his Telegram channel.

Former bolboy urges Federer to apologize for hitting the ball

Australian businessman Heath Jameson has called on tennis player Roger Federer to apologize for the incident 14 years ago.

At the 2006 Australian Open, he played the role of a ball boy, and in one of the matches a Swiss athlete accidentally hit him with a ball.

The surrounding people at that time did not attach much importance to what happened, and the commentators of the game joked that the boy was lucky: from now on he can brag to his friends that Federer himself was hit by him.

The record of the moment was taken out of the archive after Novak Djokovic was disqualified at the last US Open.

In one of the episodes of the match with the Spaniard Pablo Carreno-Busto, the Serb, having lost the serve with the score 5: 5 in the first set, hit the ball with a racket without looking and accidentally hit the neck of the line judge Laura Clark, who was behind him.

The woman grabbed her throat and fell, and the tennis player was disqualified for unsportsmanlike behavior and fined $ 10 thousand, and also deprived of $ 250 thousand in prize money.

After that, Clarke was harassed by Djokovic fans on Instagram.

The situation took such a turn that the athlete had to urge his fans to stop attacking Clarke, "who did nothing wrong."

And yet in Serbia they decided that their compatriot suffered because of his nationality: they say, Federer or Rafael Nadal would not have been punished so severely for a similar offense.

According to journalist Joe Sandom, despite the different reactions of the bolboy at AO-2006 and the judge at USO-2020, the episodes may have been identical.

“The question arises: are the rules the same for everyone,” he said.

Jamison also drew attention to different interpretations of similar moments: “Federer throws the ball back and hits me.

Says "you have to be ready" and giggles ... Roger, isn't it time to apologize? "

“They ridiculed that we are all doping, that we are all alcoholics.

For example, we are sitting with friends, and someone could turn and say: "You know, I hate Russians and Slavs in general."

This was normal and not considered racist.

Everyone is calm about this.

At some point I stopped noticing, "Belonogoff summed up.
