Jose Mourinho has heaped praise on Tottenham's 'kids' after he handed three academy players their debuts in the 4-0 win over Ludogorets on Thursday.

It was a memorable night for the Spurs youngsters, with Alfie Whiteman, Harvey White and Dane Scarlett introduced for their debuts late on at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Scarlett, aged 16 and 247 days, became the youngest player to feature for the club when he replaced Moura in the 82nd minute, beating John Bostock's previous record set in 2008.

He almost scored two minutes later, but Plamen Iliev rushed out well to save after the Under 18s striker had brilliantly controlled Winks' pass.

It was also a bright cameo for White, who has been in and around the senior set-up since the summer of 2019 and caught the eye of Mourinho as well as his predecessor Mauricio Pochettino.

Mourinho said: 'Nice opportunity for kids to get into the club history and to make their own history. 4-0, three points, all good.

'I know them (the kids) well. Harvey (White) works with us everyday now in our squad.

'The same with Jack Clarke. Scarlett did pre-season with us and played pre-season matches so we know what they can do but it has to be at the right moment with the right pressure. Today was the right kind of game.
