Park Ji-Sung Considering Leaving Manchester United

Former South Korean national soccer team captain Park Ji-Sung told reporters he may leave Manchester United when his contract runs out next year, according to the UK’s Daily Mail.

Park, 30, was expected to sign a new contract just before joining his team in August for a string of exhibition matches in the United States.

But Park Ji-Sung told reporters ahead of his charity match in Vietnam he was open to the idea of moving to another club before retirement.

“I won’t be able to show my best after one or two years. I don’t know how long I can stay at Manchester,’ said Park, who has been linked with Spanish clubs Sevilla and Atletico Madrid.

‘I never thought about retirement but it’s obvious that I don’t have much time left as a player.’

He added: ‘According to circumstances, I might leave Manchester United and retire in another team.’

Park was in Vietnam for the Doosan Asian Dream Cup, which was also attended by Bolton’s Lee Chung-Yong, Monaco’s Park Chu-Young, Celtic’s Ki Sung-Yueng, according to the Daily Mail.
