Tottenham Hotspur newbie Heung-min Son hails his new stadium and fantastic fans

White Hart Lane 6

The South Korean was unveiled at White Hart Lane yesterday.

Tottenham Hotspur played out a 0-0 draw with Everton yesterday, so perhaps the most exciting thing to happen on the pitch was the unveiling of new signing Heung-min Son.

The South Korean was presented to the crowd at his new home yesterday in his new number ‘7’ shirt – clearly pleased and slightly awed at his new surroundings.

After stepping out onto the pitch for the first time he spoke to the official Tottenham Hotspur website about his experience, highlighting some well-spoken English, and the fact he cannot believe he is set to play in the Premier League:

“It is unbelievable.

“It is a very nice, great stadium. I am happy to be here with fantastic fans. Unbelievable.”

Son was snapped up for a fee in the region of £18 million, as reported by Sky Sports, from German Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen – where he has building a reputation as a top young talent for many years to come.

Spurs have been making wholesale changes to the attacking department. Roberto Soldado is gone and Emmanuel Adebayor is going.

Clinton N’Jie has arrived at the club and now Son is also there.

Time will tell if Spurs are soon unveiling Saido Berahino in similar fashion.
