Thanks to our friends from Manchester United lovers union. We bring for you this interview with Manchester United Korean star, Park Ji sung, who was in top form during FC Seoul game last Friday.
Who is your favorite player?
When I was young I was looking forward to be like Brazil’s captain Dunga, and Korean midfielder Yoon-Hwan, I used to play in the middle like Dunga. So I admire him because of that. I love the way in which all inspired their clubs and national teams.
Is it true that your father gave you boiled frog extract every day to eat when you were young?
Yes! Apparently my father felt it would help me grow taller.
What do you think of rumors saying that United signed you to market its name in East Asia?
I do not think so, I’m playing with the team since 2005 and have done many at the Old Trafford and the evidence of this is the opinion of Sir Alex Ferguson about me.
Do you think Manchester United can win the Premier League this season?
Certainly, we are looking forward to the Premiership and we always have the ability to win trophies.
What is your opinion of Man United new signings?
I think they are very good deals. Michael Owen has the ability to score goals and has done this in the previous two matches, while Antonio Valencia has the speed and skills and everyone knows his abilities from his time with Wigan and Obertan will be useful in the future of Manchester United.
Why did you decide that World Cup 2010 will be the last big event for you?
Because, I do not think that my endurance will continue until the 2014 World Cup…
Is it true The Korean government nominate one of streets after your name when joining Manchester United?
Correct, they have done this and I want to thank them for that … This shows how Koreans love Man United and their sense of pride.
What is your ambition with the team next season?
My ambition has not and will never stop. I want to make a contribution to make our fans happy, who owe them all the thanks.
Thank you and wish you good luck with Manchester United this season.
