QPR confirm signing of Park from United

QPR have confirmed the marquee signing of South Korean star Park Ji-sung from Manchester United.

The 31-year-old, who cost Rangers just over £2m, has agreed a two-year contract at Loftus Road.

Rangers see Park’s arrival as a statement of intent – and pivotal to the Tony Fernandes-led regime’s plan to grow a large Asian fan base.

Chairman Fernandes declared: “I can’t wait for Ji to appear in QPR colours. This is an important step forward for the club – to get a global superstar.

“It’s a thrill for me. My heart is running at about 150 miles per hour that we’ve attracted such a player to Queens Park Rangers.”

Park is the most decorated player in his continent’s history and was a popular figure at United, where he won four Premier League titles and the Champions League during his seven years at Old Trafford.

“It was a tough decision to leave United, but QPR showed me their ambiton and I’m looking forward to playing for them,” he said.

“They want to be a bigger club. The ambition for me is a great challenge. They’re hungry to get to the next level and that’s important.

“I know QPR want to improve and I want to help them with their ambitions to reach that next level.”

Rangers manager Mark Hughes said: “He’s a guy who feels there’s still success ahead of him. It’s a very exciting time for QPR and he’ll be a big part of that.”
