Philip Cocu, the manager of Dutch giants PSV Eindhoven has confirmed the club is trying to tie up a deal to bring Queens Park Rangers’ Korean midfielder Park Ji Sung back to the Philips Stadium.
The former captain of the Korean national team has reportedly been told by the club management at Queens Park Rangers that he is surplus to requirements at the club and is free to move just a year after joining the Loftus Road club from Manchester United on a two year deal last summer.
Park made 25 appearances for Rangers last season as they were relegated from the Premier League to the Championship and is now being lined up by the former Dutch champions for a return to the Netherlands where he spent two years before being sold to Manchester United in 2005. Park Ji Sung played for some time alongside the former Barcelona midfielder Cocu at PSV and according to the manager, the 32 year old is a perfect fit for the club.
He added that the midfielder has all the experience in the world, having played for Manchester United in all the major competitions and would be a valuable addition to the squad. According to the Dutchman, Park is a really valuable player because of his experience of playing in a top side like Manchester United.
Moreover, he has also played at the club for a couple of seasons and knows the club inside out and it wouldn’t take him too long to get settled once again. Cocu went on to add that the players who play upfront for the club at the moment are extremely talented but they could always learn from a player like Park Ji Sung who has played top level football for a very long time in a team like Manchester United.
