Spurs ace Georges-Kevin N'Koudou spoke to reporters after scoring his first goal for the club against APOEL in the Champions League last night, and shared his pride and delight at hearing Tottenham fans sing his name, as quoted by the club's official website.

The 22-year-old joined the Lilywhites from Marseille on transfer deadline day in the summer of 2016, for a fee believed to be in the region of £11 million, but has failed to establish himself at the club, making just three starts in all competitions for Mauricio Pochettino's side.

The tide might just be starting to turn for the Frenchman, however, after he bagged his first goal for the club during Spurs' 3-0 win over APOEL in the Champions League last night.

“I’m very happy to score my first goal for Tottenham – it’s a big moment for me because it’s been a long time coming. Today is a very special day and I hope to keep going like this, working hard in training. Every day I will smile, this never changes, but naturally I’m very happy tonight! When you come onto the pitch and you see all the fans in the whole stadium, then when you score and hear your name (sung by the fans and read out on the tannoy) it makes you very happy.”

Next up for Spurs is a home game against Stoke City in the Premier League on Saturday, and N'Koudou will be hoping that he has done enough to earn another starting berth at Wembley.
