Which Premier League footballer is now playing for a university team?
What would you do if an ex-Premier League footballer turned up at the Freshers Fair to join your uni team?
Park Ji Sung, the former Manchester United and Queens Park Rangers midfielder, now attends De Montford University in Leicester, and he's signed up to play for the union team!
Back in his heyday the player was traded for £4.5 million, but now he's grabbing £2 pints at the union after his Wednesday afternoon fixture.
The 35 year-old, who has amassed 100 caps for South Korea and was his nations captain until his retirement two years ago, has enrolled in a year’s course in Sports Management, believed so he could gain a deeper understanding for when he makes the transition into management.
Famed for his tenacity in midfield, Park played 134 matches for United, scoring 19 goals including a crucial winner in a 2-1 victory over Chelsea in the Champions League quarter-final in 2010.
He has now retired from football after an ankle injury ruled him out of the professional game in 2014 and is now studying to become a manager.
He didn’t get his university playing career off to a good start, though. His side lost 7-1 on Monday (10th Oct).
Let’s hope his studies go better.
