Ex-Man Utd Star Park Ji-sung Starts Playing For University Team in Leicester

Ex-Man Utd Star Park Ji-sung Starts Playing For University Team in Leicester

Former Manchester United midfielder Park Ji-sung has started playing for an amateur team in Leicester after enrolling at the city’s De Montfort Uni.

The Champions League winner and former South Korean captain was once one of Sir Alex Ferguson’s most trusted players at Old Trafford and was often deployed in Ferguson’s midfield for the biggest games.

But now Ji-sung is studying a course in International Management, Law and Humanities of Sport at De Montfort University (DMU) and, according to the Leicester Mercury, played for a for a FIFA Masters students’ team against a side put out by De Montford’s vice chancellor Dominic Shellard earlier this week.

Park is still just 35, and only retired at PSV Eindhovenin 2014 because of a knee injury, but he couldn’t help his new team-mates to victory with the vice chancellor’s side running out comfortable 7-1 winners.

As ringers go, a former international captain and ex-Man Utd Premier League winner is pretty decent, eh?

Fingers crossed he gets that illusive first uni victory soon!
