Bayer Leverkusen striker Heung-min Son: I'm big Man Utd fan

Bayer Leverkusen striker Heung-min Son is excited facing boyhood idols Manchester United tonight.

The South Korean striker is set to line up for Bayer Leverkusen in tonight's Champions League clash.

"I was a United fan as child and I was always happy when they scored," he said. "Now I'm going to be playing at Old Trafford and that's a great honour. I'm really looking forward to it.

"I'll be facing many great players. I want to learn from Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney, who are top strikers, and I'm also looking forward to playing against Patrice Evra.

"I'll learn a lot in the match and it will be really special moment for me but I will try my best to win the game."
