QPR’s Park Ji-Sung: It was a great privilege to play for Man United
Queens Park Rangers' latest signing Park Ji-Sung says it was a "great privilege" to play for Manchester United
Park Ji-Sung has described having the chance to play for Manchester United as a “great privilege” after the South Korea midfielder signed a two-year deal at Queens Park Rangers on Monday.
The 31-year-old scored 27 goals in 205 appearances for the Red Devils after joining the 19-time English champions from Eredivisie outfit PSV Eindhoven in 2005.
Park won four Premier League titles, the League Cup three times and was part of United’s squad that beat Chelsea on penalties in the Champions League final in 2008.
The South Korea international cost Hughes a reported £2m, and while Park is exited by the prospect of a fresh challenge in the Premier League, he will still look back fondly on his time at Old Trafford.
“My time at United will last in my heart for the rest of my life,” he told United’s website.
“It’s been a great privilege to be part of such a great team, to have won so much and to have played with special teammates and for the greatest manager in the game.
“I would like to thank everybody at the club who give their best every single day to put every player in the best condition to enjoy their football and achieve success.”
He added: “The fans have been fantastic to me and I will always remember them with great affection.
“Now, I’m looking forward to giving everything for a new challenge at QPR, where I will bring all my ambition and spirit I have gathered at United. [Those qualities] will be with me forever.”
