Park Ji Sung signs new deal

MU midfielder Park Ji-Sung has signed a 1 year contract extension that will maintain him at MU until at least the end of the 2012/13 season.

The South Korean star has become an unsung hero at United, dispelling uncertainties over the validity of his move from PSV Eindhoven in 2005 to seal a central post in Sir Alex Ferguson's plans.

"I've delighted every minute of my time at United," he told. "I'm pleased to be part of the club during this latest stage in its history - with another exciting young squad being built. I'm looking forward to playing my role in keeping United at the top of the game."

Ferguson revealed during United's pre-season tour of North America that the club had offered Park a new contract.

The 30-year-old speedily signaled a willingness to sign and now the loose ends have been completed ahead of the English Premier League opener at West Brom.

Having played a part in 4 league title triumphs, plus 3 League Cup wins and a FIFA Club World Cup, Ferguson clearly views Park Ji Sung as a major figure in the new team that is emerging at Old Trafford, especially as his decision to retire from international combat earlier this year has substantially reduced the tiring hours spent tripping back to the Far East.

"Park has been an crucial player for us for a number of years now," told the Scot."He has great ability and energy and in recent seasons has added the knack of scoring important goals in big games.

"He's a popular member of the team and his experience at domestic and international level is invaluable for the younger players."
