      Korean national football squad captain Ki Sung-yueng is having an impressive season with Swansea City in the English Premier League.

      Ki scored his sixth goal of the season in an away match against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane on Wednesday, surpassing Park Ji-sung's five to become the Korean footballer with the most goals in a Premier League season.

      It was Ki's 10th career goal in the league since his debut in 2012.

      Despite his team's 3-2 loss, Ki's performance was enough to earn attention. Sky Sports gave him seven points, the highest among all the players in the two teams.

      Ki said he is very proud as a Korean to achieve the feat and will continue to work hard on his game.
