There were reports circulating in the media that Park Ji Sung is likely to return to Manchester United after retirement but the reason was not clear.
However, it has been confirmed that the South Korean has returned for an ambassadorial role with the club.
The former Red Devil star spent 7 years of his distinguished career with Manchester United and won numerous top prizes with the club under the management of Alex Ferguson.
Park won the premier league 4 times, the league cup 3 times, Champions League once and one FIFA Club World Cup as well.
He played his last season on loan with PSV Eindhoven and announced his retirement.
Hiring Park as the ambassador will help a lot in promoting work and more importantly once again attract a large chunk of Asian community who might have lost some interest after the sale of Japanese international Shinji Kagawa.
Park is obviously delighted to come back to the place where he became the most decorated Asian. He stated:
“I have fond memories of my time at Manchester United and I am delighted and honoured to have become an ambassador for the club.
“Some of the best moments of my life and career were spent here and I will never forget the great support I had from the club and the fans. I am looking forward to once again representing United and sharing some of these memories with our global fanbase.”
His appointment is another step forward for the Red Devils however fans are more worried about recent results and that must improve soon.
