ManU Eyes Eindhoven's Park Ji-sung

Postby Holyjoe » Thu Apr 28, 2005 9:33 am

Some comedy journalism from the Chosun Ilbo:

ManU Eyes Eindhoven's Park Ji-sung

PSV Eindhoven’s midfielder Park Ji-sung may be on his way to the English Premier League. The latest edition of the Japanese football weekly Soccer Magazine said Manchester United coach Sir Alex Ferguson expressed interest in the 24-year old.

In a report on the UEFA Champions League semifinals, Soccer Magazine said Ferguson met with Eindhoven coach Guus Hiddink after watching PSV's match against Olympique Lyon, and expressed interest in Park. However, some European media reported Ferguson went to the Netherlands in order to secure Eindhoven striker Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink.

Park has said several times that his goal is to play in England. The Korean midfielder has been playing up a storm as of late in both the Dutch Eredivisie and Champions League, so his name is naturally popping up on the scouting lists of Europe's big league teams. But Eindhoven has vowed to hold on to Park, and the midfielder is calmly considering his future course.

Because there are rumours and then there are just plain stupid news articles.

I think the above is definitely one of the latter :wink:

(Though if Mr. Ferguson wants to sign Park and then loan him out to his former club Aberdeen he's more than welcome :-D )

If this happens, I get to see Park play through World Fox channel which currently carries the P-League. I want it, and I want it now! :smt026

I thought JV of H was going to Spurs? Or Aberdeen if some internet 'prankster' is to be believed.

Where do they get the bullshit?
Maybe they search the BS rumors board.

Wait, that sounds like a job I can handle :P

Absolute rubbish. Speaking of which, do you guys think Park should transfer to a better league or stick it with PSV for a couple of years?

I think a year or two at PSV won't help. Help him tone his skills and get him ready for the big leagues.

I have mixed feelings. Surely, if he moves to Spain, EPL, or the Serie-A, I would want him to move to a bigger and better club than the likes of Newcastle, Real Betis, or Parma but then again, I feel that there is a bubble hype created by this CL Semi run, making Park look better than he actually is. To be frank, after watching the last few PSV games, I think he is slowly in the process of being overrated by the media. He's great by Asian standards but nothing spectacular.

Yes he's being overrated I think as well.
He's doing great in the build up and work out in the flanks and in the middle of the park but he's somewhat lost his touch in front of goal I think. Once he's got that in his bag, I think he'll become a complete player ready for consistent top level football.
