Now as one of the more experienced lads in the squad and a reputation as a big-game player, scoring goals against Arsenal, Liverpool and AC Milan this season, Park has confessed he hopes to see out the rest of his career at United.
“If it is possible I want to finish my career at Manchester United,” said Park. “Manchester United is the world’s best club. There is no reason to move to any other team. As the club encourages footballers to stay with the team, there are many old boys such as Scholes and Giggs. If the club takes care of me and helps me improve, it is natural to stick with them.”
