Spurs fans react on Twitter to Son hat-trick, send message to board

There was a mixture of delight and scepticism from Tottenham Hotspur supporters after their forward netted a hat-trick for South Korea.

Tottenham fans were pleased to see their summer signing Heung-Min Son was on the scoresheet - on three separate occasions - for South Korea on Thursday afternoon.

Indeed, the 23-year-old netted a hat-trick for his national side during a World Cup qualifier and the White Hart Lane faithful were naturally left excited by the prospect of their big-money signing doing the same in a Tottenham shirt.

That said, there was an appreciation that this was only against Loas. But goals are goals and, if Son can deliver in the Premier League, Spurs may well look to the South Korean as an alternative - or hub of support - to Harry Kane.

The delight, however, was also tinged with scepticism from plenty of Tottenham fans. And many of them sent a direct message to the club and its board that masquerading Son as a potential striker won't change the fact the north London side didn't actually sign a new centre-forward.

Harry Redknapp certainly seems to be a fan of the 23-year-old, though, and Spurs supporters will no doubt hope the goals continue. Here's how Twitter reacted to Son's display:
