I don't think Alex put him in the starting XI so often this season, mainly due to business reasons. He wants to win the Premier League, and he wants his team to win all the matches, it just doesn't make sense that he'd make that decision based on that. Park is definitely there because of football reasons. I think Park is playing in the starting XI simply because he adds something different to the team. His diagonal movements, his simple passing brings something extra to the team. You can obviously see, at times, when Nani is there, the movement and link-up play between midfield and strikers is not as fluid. Nani has good dribbling skills, but has so much more to learn about movement and space. Skill-wise, yes, he is not as good as Ronaldo or Nani. But there are some games in which I think he's more reliable. But he's definitely an intelligent player who knows how to find space and make runs very well. But I can't say that he's way better than Nani, there are pros and cons. Having both Nani and Park in the team is a good thing, so Alex can rotate the squad to maintain fitness levels. It's great to have depth in the team. If Alex can intensify Park's training to further develop his shooting skills, I think he's more than good enough to be in the starting XI.

Your response was very interesting to hear. I am glad to hear that he is good, even if he is not good as some other players. Good job comparing him to different players on the team. I started this discussion because I wanted to know people's opinion of J.S. Park. He is Korean and so am I. Koreans are a big fan of him so I was wondering if other people liked him also. Thanks for you response.

Your welcome. Park is a good player, without a doubt. He'll be an excellent player, if he improves his shooting skills, and scores more goals.

Yes, I would have to agree with that. He has his areas of strengths and weaknesses and areas where he could improve. But no soccer player is 100% perfect. Anyways, thanks for your opinions and thoughts!

J.S Park is a very hardworking player. He fights for every ball and he plays his position well. He may not be as talented or fluid as Ronaldo but he is definitely a very reliable player (perhaps even more reliable than Ronaldo). I like his consistency.

That is a very nice way of putting it. I liked how you did not say directly that he sucks, and also how you mentioned the good and bad sides of his soccer skills. Also, comparing him to another, perhaps more famous player was a great idea. I am going to give you best response. Happy mylotting!

park is a great player. he is very very hardworking on the field and he tries to win each and every ball. he is very good player to play as a winger. he should be played more by fergie . ronaldo is the only one praised as he has scored many goals , we should also praise the players who contribute and create the goal. happy mylotting!!!

I also wish to see him play more. I agree that soccer is a team sport and everyone should receive credit for goals and not just the one who made the goal. Thank you for sharing your very positive thoughts about J.S.Park.

I think is good talentet from south korea, why i say it, beacuse he have speed to run with or non the ball, spirit to playing till time out. But, he must be patient to become palyer backup, because so many good player in MU team.

There was a lot of hype in Asia surrounding the transfer of JS Park to Man United. He is no doubt a very talented player, but whether he is Man U class is very debatable. I guess he is a good squad player to have in the team, but not good enough to hold down a regular starting XI place. I guess his selection has been partly due to Man U's expansion plans to capture the Asian market. Cheers! Ram

I am glad to know that people outside of Korea know him as a good, talented player. That makes me very happy! He is a very celebrated player in Korea, probably the best soccer player in Korea.
