Earlier this week Manchester United announced there would be some ‘exciting’ news revealed about Park Ji Sung yesterday, but nothing has yet been confirmed.
The immediate thought among fans was that, as Park retired back in May due to injury, United could be making him the latest global ambassador of the club.
From the Glazers’ point of view, it would tick a lot of boxes.
Shinji Kagawa’s departure means United have lost a lot of marketing ability in Asia but bringing Park back into the mix would solve that problem.
Outside of an ambassadorial role, it’s hard to see why United would be excited to be working with Park again.
Of course, that is unless Park is going to be part of Louis van Gaal‘s revolution of United’s fitness coaching staff…
There wouldn’t be many better examples of a player who was almost unnaturally fit when at the top of his game like Park was.
