Three days ago, Park’s face was replaced by Wayne Rooney on the promotional material for the pre-season tour, making it fairly obvious that the rumours of his departure were true.
“I know QPR want to improve and have ambitions to reach the next level and I will try my best to help,” said Park. “There were other offers but nothing compared to QPR.”
Sir Alex Ferguson has sung the praises of the midfielder, claiming it was lack of game time which forced the player out of the club.
“He’s been a fantastic servant to the club over the past seven years,” he told the official site. “He is the ultimate professional and such a nice lad; he never let us down on the big occasions. Unfortunately, I just couldn’t give him the number of games he wanted. Everyone at Manchester United wishes him well for the future and I am sure he will be a great success at QPR.”
