The South Korean footballer is happy after more than 70,000 fans were part of the historic win 3-0 against Borussia Dortmund.

Last week, Tottenham Hotspur and Son Heung-min defeated German Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund 3-0 at Wembley Stadium.

And the more than 70,000 fans that were there to support the English Premier League team went home happy.

Who is also happy is South Korea superstar Son Heung-min, who has talked to the team’s official website to praise the club’s supporters.

Son Heung-min started his professional career in 2010 with Hamburger in the German Bundesliga.

He quickly rose in the squad and in 2013 he was bought by Baker Leverkusen, where he spent two years.

It was in 2015 when he moved to England, where he has played 172 matches for his team, scoring 63 goals.

“Our fans support us with heart,” he started saying.

“I respect them and I support them as well.”

“Even when I don’t play well, I try to pay them back as much as possible, try to work as hard as possible, this is most important,” he continued.

“It’s about winning and losing, but we have to show people respect as well.”

“This is what I try to do. I don’t know if I’m always doing well, but I always try my best, especially for the people around me and the fans as well,” the footballer concluded.

The team will now play against Burnley on Saturday, then will visit Chelsea in the middle of the week and then host Arsenal on March 2nd.

The second leg of the Champions League Round of 16 series will be played on March 5th, as they visit the Signal Iduna Park with a 3-0 advantage over the German club.
