Park agrees United extension

14 September 2009 11:00
Park Ji-sung's agent claims the midfielder has agreed a new three-year contract at Manchester United. The South Korean midfielder, who has been in talks with the Red Devils for some time, will now remain with the Red Devils until at least 2012. Park joined United from PSV Eindhoven in 2005 and has been a considerable success during his time in England. He has become an important cog in the Old Trafford machine, despite finding himself behind the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo for much of his time at the club. He became the first Asian player to feature in a UEFA Champions League final when he featured in United's 2-0 defeat to Barcelona in May, while he has been crucial to helping raise the Red Devils' profile in Korea. Park has now decided to commit his long-term future to Sir Alex Ferguson's side, with his new deal set to take him past his 31st birthday. "Park and Manchester United have reached an agreement on a three-year deal," Park's agent Kim Jung-Soo told Yonhap news agency. "The contract will be effective through June 2012."
