Ex-Manchester United veteran Park Ji-Sung thrills Singaporean fans

Retired South Korean midfielder Park Ji-Sung, who spent seven trophy-laden years at Old Trafford, thrilled some local crowds when he made two public appearances in Singapore on Tuesday.

The 35-year-old won four Premier League titles, three League Cups and a Champions League crown during his time at Manchester United.

Commencing his career with J-League club Kyoto back in 2000, Park then shifted to PSV Eindhoven under Guus Hiddink before coming to the attention of former United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

Signing with the Red Devils in 2005, Park became the first South Korean to win a Premier League medal and went on to enjoy a successful stint in Manchester.

Now acting as an ambassador for the English giants, Park was asked on Tuesday what it was like to play alongside Real Madrid superstar and former United standout Cristiano Ronaldo.

"It was great," he said, not surprisingly. "You know he can score, he can create chances and he can make space for other players.

"It was easy to play with him and I really enjoyed playing with him."

Park was at Singapore Polytechnic campus earlier on Tuesday before making an appearance at Cathay Cineleisure later in the afternoon.
