That audacious, fantastic candidate for goal of the season was met with suitable praise across social media ⁠— and from Spurs manager Jose Mourinho.

In his postgame media conference, Mourinho admitted his own son has a nickname for Son:

“Even before (this goal), my son calls him ‘Sonaldo.’ ‘Sonaldo Nazário.’ And today he was Sonaldo Nazário.”

Mourinho’s referring to the Brazilian Ronaldo, a physically gifted legend who won two World Cups and terrified defenses for well over a decade.

Here’s the Associated Press video of Mourinho’s comments:

It’s been quite a week for Ronaldo, whom Zlatan Ibrahimovic said was better than Cristiano Ronaldo a few days ago.

It’s been quite a start for Mourinho’s Spurs, too, who have now won four of five matches since he took charge.
