Park is the most-decorated Asian footballer in history as the first Asian player to have won the Champions League trophy and the first Asian to have played in a final of the UEFA Champions League. Park is able to play anywhere across the midfield and is noted for his exceptional fitness level, discipline, work ethic and off-the-ball movement.
Park Ji-Sung has had a hugely successful career at both club and national level. As a member of the South Korean national team, Park won 100 caps and scored 13 goals, and was also a member of the team that finished fourth at the 2002 FIFA World Cup. He also represented his nation at the 2006 FIFA World Cup and was captain at the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
After PSV reached the semi-finals of the 2004–05 UEFA Champions League, Park’s talents were recognised by Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson and he signed Park for a fee of around £4 million in July 2005. Since then, Park has won the Premier League four times for United.
Alex Ferguson’s belief in Park was demonstrated by the fact that he repeatedly used him in big league games or European games where there was an extra emphasis on defensive work.
In 2010, park won the KFA Footballer of the Year award.
After the 2011 Asian Cup, on 31 January 2011, Park announced that he was retiring from international football at a press conference held by the Korea Football Association in Seoul.
Given his incredible accomplishments and pleasing manner, Park Ji-Sung is a great choice of brand ambassador.
