Quite probably one of the most unappreciated player at Manchester United, Park Ji Sung is quite the opposite in my estimations. His unrelenting work ethic and uncanny ability to score big goals in big games has made him one of my personal favourite United players in the current squad. Recently, Park Ji Sung spoke to reporters prior to his charity match in Vietnam and rumours quickly emerged that the Asian sensation was looking to move away from Manchester United in the near future.
“According to circumstances, I might leave Manchester United and retire in another team.I won’t be able to show my best after one or two years. I don’t know how long I can stay at Manchester.”
However, at a recent autograph signing session as part of United’s 2 week tour of Asia where they will be showcasing the Premier League trophy, Park moved quickly quash any mounting speculation that he has any desire to leave United any time soon. Good. I wouldn’t want him to leave because I consider him an absolutely vital part of our squad and long may he continue playing in the red of Manchester.
“It would be an honour for me to keep playing for Manchester United. I have nothing to say about any transfer rumours, I just want to stay at Manchester United. As an Asian player, it’s an honour to play for the biggest club in the world. I and other players want to achieve 20th league title for United.”
