Park Ji-Sung has said that he is not unhappy to be terminated as the captain of Queens Park rangers. The South Korean midfielder had been out of action since the last three months because of injury and he started the match for QPR first time after October against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday. That was a FA cup clash which ended in a draw. Park Ji-Sung didn’t wear the captain’s armband in that match and the manager of QPR, Harry Redknapp decided to persist with Clint Hill as the skipper.
After the match, when Park Ji-Sung was asked if he is unhappy after being removed as captain, Park said, “No, I am not upset at all. It’s the decision of the manager and I respect his decision. In my absence, Clint did well as skipper and there is no harm in persisting with him. He is a good leader.”
“As far as I am concerned, I am a senior player and I don’t need that captain’s armband to feel that there is a huge responsibility on my shoulders. Even without that band, I know that I need to guide the youngsters and help them out.”
“At this point of time, I am happy that I have recovered from injury and have managed to make a comeback. It’s nice to be back on the field after such a long time. Hopefully, I would not have to face any injury problems in the remaining part of the season.”
When asked about the recent performances of QPR, Park said, “We have done well in the last couple of games. We won against Chelsea on Wednesday. That was a great victory for us as Chelsea is a heavyweight side. And, we played well in today’s match as well. Hopefully, we would maintain our good form in the further matches.”
