The manager of Manchester United, Sir Alex Ferguson, has said that Park Ji-Sung was one of the best midfielders who played for United during his 26 years tenure at the club. Park Ji-Sung currently plays for the Queens Park Rangers. He left United in July this year and signed a two-year contract for QPR. He was also named as the captain of QPR in his debut season.
Talking to the reporters ahead of the match against QPR, Ferguson said, “Park is an enormously talented midfielder. He has great reach and he can do some amazing things on the field. During my tenure at Old Trafford so far, some great midfielders have played for the club, but, If I will have to choose top 10 of them, Park will certainly be in that list. He was simply outstanding.”
“The most amazing thing about Park is that he always keeps his cool on the field. You will hardly see him getting angry. He quietly does his job. He knows how to hold the nerves during the tough situations and that’s why, he is a big match player. He contributed immensely for us in a number of big matches.”
When asked whether the fans of United still love Park, Ferguson said, “I think yes. They still like him and follow him. He was one of our most popular players when he used to play for us. He isn’t a part of United now, but, his popularity hasn’t decreased.”
When asked about the upcoming match against QPR, Ferguson said, “It’s an important match for us. We were terrible in the last match, but, the boys are up for this match. I hope that the mistakes of the previous game would not be repeated this time around and we would put up a good show.”
