Former Manchester United Workhorse Park Ji-Sung Has A New Team

Park Ji-Sung once stuck to his task of marking Andrea Pirlo that the midfield genius felt the need to write about it in his book. So lord help the poor sods at De Montfort University who are now his opponents.

Recently it was reported that former Manchester United cult hero Park had joined De Montfort University to study Sports Management as his football career had come to an end. The former PSV midfielder admitted he fancied working in coaching and management in South Korea but wanted to further his knowledge first, good going.

And now it seems that the 35 year old hasn't been able to ignore the allure of returning to the pitch. Park has joined the university's 'Masters' team and took on a side put together by De Montfort University vice chancellor Dominic Shellard.

Despite the Pirlo botherer being on the pitch the mature students apparently lost 7-1! That's an absolute battering.

Based on that video he's lost none of the skill that so irritated Pirlo.

We can't confirm whether or not Park went to the Union for a couple of beers after the match but we'd like to imagine so.
