South Korean legend Ahn Jung-Hwan has said that he is sure that Manchester United midfielder Park Ji sung will return to South Korea to play in the K-League in the summer. Manchester United midfielder Park Ji sung has been one of the regular big-game players at the club.
He has often been selected in the big games in order to stifle the opposition with his bountiful energy. Manager Sir Alex Ferguson considers him to be one of the key numbers of the squad at Manchester United. His confidence in the South Korean was reflected in the fact that he started in the 3-1 defeat against Barcelona in the Champions League final last summer.
However, a number of injuries at the start of the season has meant that he has lost his place to more younger players. In the last few months, Park Ji sung has not started a Premier league game until the Manchester derby on April 30. However, it clearly showed that Ji sung was not up to the standards after not starting in the Manchester United midfielder regularly. The 31-year-old has been linked with a return to his homeland in order to finish his career. South Korean legend Ahn Jung-Hwan hopes that the time has come for Park Ji sung to finally return to South Korea.
“I’m excited that I’m going to meet fans from my hometown Suwon where I dreamt of becoming a national team member from childhood,” Park said. “I think Ji-sung will help us once he retires. Like me, Ji-Sung received a lot of support from fans, so I think he should also help the K-League,” Ahn said. Park Ji sung’s last match in South Korea was way back in 2003. He is all set to be replaced by Borussia Dortmund’s Japanese player Kagawa.
