Wolves loanee Hwang Hee-Chan says he wants to emulate Son Heung-min in the Premier League.
As per the Express and Star, Hwang said that his international teammate is a role model for all South Korean players.
Hwang got his first Wolves start on Wednesday night but he was unable to get through to the fourth round of the EFL Cup at the expense of Spurs and £22 million man Son.
“First of all, Son is a player who represents Korea,” Hwang said.
“He does well in the Premier League. He is, of course a role model for every Korean player. My wish is for him to keep performing well in the Premier League and for him to be a success.
“It has been my dream to play in Europe since I was little. While I was in high school, people including the boss at Salzburg came and explained to me about their future vision for the team.
“They told me how much they wanted me, and how good I could be. It made me want to play for this team. So I went to Europe.”
It remains to be seen if Hwang stays in the team for the trip to face Southampton this weekend.
Bruno Lage may feel inclined to shake up his Premier League side after the 2-0 loss to Brentford in their last league outing.
Hwang has as good a claim as anyone to be in the side if Lage does make changes, given his energy and the strong start he’s made to his Wolves career.
