Where do you live now?

How long have you been a Tottenham Hotspur supporter?
Since 30 October 2011.

Why did you start supporting Tottenham Hotspur?
I’d always wanted to visit some matches in England since I was very young. And it was kind of randomly back then that it was a Spurs match that was my first English match to visit. I wanted to experience the pure atmosphere at an English game, and I preferred to travel to London. I wanted to visit a Premier League match and Arsenal I didn’t like already back then, and same for Chelsea and for West Ham I was neutral. So I just gave it a try at Tottenham… but at the same time it was as though I’d got infected with some kind of virus!

What was the first game you went to?
It was on 30 October 2011, a home game against QPR (Queens Park Rangers) at White Hart Lane. The score was 3-1 Spurs. I think Bale scored twice and Van der Vaart got the other.

Who is your all-time favourite player?
All time is hard to say, seeing as I’ve only followed Spurs since 2011, but I would say Kane.

Who is your favourite player currently?
For this moment, maybe Son. I mean, I’m quite impressed by the way he performs. All the effort he puts in for Spurs, so many games, he’s always there, he never complains about what he needs to do, about which position. You know, he really sacrifices himself for the team, and that’s something that I can really appreciate.

What was the best (live) game you went to?
That was against Arsenal. In February 2015. This was my first and so far only north London derby. I went there with a friend of mine – to White Hart Land – and we won 2-1. So at half-time it was one nil Arsenal (I think Ozil scored) and in the second half, Kane scored twice… I think once in the 65 minute, the equaliser, and then just before the end of the game, the winning header! And he ran to the East Stand, where I was sitting and celebrated. So, yeah, this is definitely the best match I’ve ever been to in a stadium.

What was the best goal you’ve ever seen?
Live? Probably Kane’s header against Arsenal.
