QPR’s Djibril Cissé: Park Ji-Sung can be a ‘massive player’ for the Hoops
Djibril Cissé believes Queens Park Rangers' latest signing Park Ji-Sung can be a "massive player" for the Loftus Road outfit
Djibril Cissé believes Park Ji-Sung can become a “massive player” for Queens Park Rangers.
Park, who scored 27 goals in 207 appearances for the Red Devils, became Mark Hughes’ fifth signing for QPR during the summer transfer window, with Samba Diakité, Robert Green, Andy Johnson and Ryan Nelsen all completing transfers to Loftus Road.
Cissé is confident Park will bring valuable experience to the first-team and have the required mentality to help the Hoops become an established Premier League club.
“Ji is a massive player,” Cissé told QPR’s website.
“He will be huge for us. He’s got a lot of experience having played for a couple of big, big Clubs.
“He’s what we needed – quality, experience, a winning-mentality.
“Ji-Sung is a big, big, big star in Asia, so it is great for the Club to promote the brand in this area of the world as well.”
Hughes hailed the signing when Park penned a two-year deal at QPR just under a fortnight ago, describing the capture of the South Korean as a “real coup” for the club.
“We are delighted Ji is going to join us because his record speaks for itself. He has been a big player for Manchester United and played a big part in their success in recent years,” Hughes said.
“He is hugely respected there because of what he has achieved, his application to his
work and the impact he has on games.
“He was always picked for the big matches because they could rely on him, and we are going to reap all those qualities.”
