park ji sung Manchester Utd and South Korea

South Korean Football Legend Park Ji Sung Retires aged 33. The former Manchester United winger announced his decision to end his playing career at a press conference in his hometown of Suwon. This past season he’s been playing for PSV Eindhoven in Holland.

It’s interesting to note that he never played club football in South Korea choosing to start his career in Japan. He’s maybe best known for his 7 years at Manchester United where he won the Premier League 4 times, League Cup 3 times and the Champions League once.

He will be playing farewell friendlies for PSV Eindhoven vs. K League Classic sides Suwon Bluewings (on May 22nd) and Gyeongnam (on May 24th).
