New Queens Park Rangers winger Park Ji-Sung has bid an emotional farewell to former club Manchester United, explaining that the special memories he built as a Red Devil with stay with him forever.
Despite recently declaring United the biggest club in the world, Park began being linked to QPR last week.
Yesterday, the move was finalized and the 31-year old paid a glowing tribute to United after signing a two-year contract at Loftus Road.
“My time at United will last in my heart for the rest of my life. It’s been a great privilege to be part of such a great team, to have won so much and to have played with special teammates and for the greatest manager in the game,” Park told United’s official website.
The winger added: “I would like to thank everybody at the club who give their best every single day to put every player in the best condition to enjoy their football and achieve success.
“The fans have been fantastic to me and I will always remember them with great affection. Now, I’m looking forward to giving everything for a new challenge at QPR, where I will bring all my ambition and spirit I have gathered at United. [Those qualities] will be with me forever.”
Indeed, with the arrival of Park, QPR have acquired the much-needed mentality that they missed last season en route to a 17th place finish that was secured on the final day of the season after flirting with relegation throughout the campaign.
