“The club actually wanted me to stay and I spoke with Sir Alex Ferguson, but it was the first time I had missed five games in a row without injury. Some of the players probably knew I was going to leave here because of that happening for the first time.”
That being said, it was not a decision Park took lightly. He had made roots in Manchester, United being the club he spent the most time at his in his career.
“It was very tough because I’d never been at one club for seven years, this was the first one,” he said.
“And everything was there; friends, families, everything settled down. So I was quite comfortable and it was like home. But I had to decide because I was 31 and it was probably the last time to move and have a contract; it was towards the end of my playing career. It was very, very hard for me to leave.
