Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger, has sung the praises of Park Ji-Sung.
Park scored the opening goal in what Wenger called “the most disappointing night” of his career, when United thrashed Arsenal at the Emirates in the Champions League semi-final last year.
We repeated that thrashing this season at the Emirates, with Park on the scoresheet again.
Wenger has praised Park for his hard working nature and good skill.
“I know that some of the Korean players are doing very well in England and of course it excites your curiosity,” said Wenger. “There are very few Asian players playing in Europe and especially in the Premier League but the Koreans look to have adapted very well here. Park has started very well. I think he has made his name at Eindhoven first and in the Champions League has convinced. When you play against him, he’s a very hard working player who sacrifices for the team but as well has good skill and scores important goals, unfortunately, against us. I’m convinced by his quality. He has a top level attitude.”
