Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho refused to answer when asked if he would have taken the Arsenal job had he been available.

Unai Emery was sacked following a 2-1 home defeat by Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League with Freddie Ljungberg installed as caretaker manager.

"There's no point in telling you," Mourinho said in his news conference ahead of Spurs' clash with Bournemouth. "I'm so happy here, I cannot think of the possibility of another club.

"If you put any other club in the world in front of me now, I'd say no."

Following Tottenham's 4-2 win over Olympiakos, Mourinho was full of praise for ball boy Callum Hynes after his role in the build up to Spurs' equaliser.

Mourinho gave Hynes a high-five while celebrating the goal, which the 15-year-old said "made my life." The ex-Chelsea and Manchester United boss said Hynes has been spending even more time with the players.

"He comes for lunch, for a prematch meal with the boys," he said. "Happy days for the kid and hopefully we gave him amazing memories for the rest of his life, so beautiful for him."
