The best tweets from the world of football this week, featuring the late Jack Charlton, a ‘fight’ between Spurs players, Mason Greenwood’s shooting ability, and the one thing at which Jordan Pickford is a world beater.
A legend of Irish and English football sadly passed away this week and the tributes flooded in.
We'll never forget.

Beyond sad to have to say goodbye to my beloved Grandad, Jack Charlton. He enriched so many lives through football, friendship and family. He was a kind, funny and thoroughly genuine man and our family will miss him enormously. pic.twitter.com/MR4i5WgAMP

Saddened to hear that Jack Charlton has passed away. World Cup winner with England, manager of probably the best ever Ireland side and a wonderfully infectious personality to boot. RIP Jack.

Some day I’ll tell Blake about the nice old gent who calmed him down when he had a meltdown in the supermarket. Sad to hear about Jack Charlton’s passing, RIP Jack. pic.twitter.com/zzg9PdzjGh

Some of the football has been quite boring lately, so it was good of Hugo lloris and Heung-min Son to give us some half-time entertainment this week.

The Amazon producers saw that the most exciting thing to have happened all season for the Spurs documentary was Mourinho hugging a ball boy so they made Lloris and Son have a fake fight looool

No goalkeeper dives for balls going miles wide with such eagerness as Jordan Pickford. Quite impressive.

This is child abuse.
This video of a footballer nutmegging an entire squad, even when they know it is coming, is utter joy. pic.twitter.com/sZxMAKqzWy
