As of next term, students at Leicester’s De Montfort University will have a Champions League winner among their midst in the shape of Park Ji-Sung.

The former Manchester United midfielder will be one of many new students starting a new sports management course at DMU.

According to the Leicester Mercury, Park has enrolled at DMU’s International Centre for Sports History and Culture and will be studying for an international masters degree in the management, law and humanities of sport.

They also have a wonderful photo of the South Korean superstar posing alongside his new classmates on the first day of school…

Eager to improve his understanding of football, Park has taken the course on the recommendation of one of his former teammates.

The 35-year-old told the Mercury:

One of my colleagues said it had been a great experience and though many players go into coaching or management, I wanted to improve my knowledge of football around the pitch and then perhaps work in the South Korean football league.

And the very bloody best of luck to him!

    I noticed De Montfort University had an advert on the boards v Chelsea. ‘Dare to be Fearless’ was their slogan…

    Hate to be a smart-arse but surely that’s a contradiction.

    This little fella was an amazing player. Big game player. Always delivered.

  3. Jarren says:

    Good on him. There’s plenty of talent in South Korea, and I’m sure he’s well respected there.

    He should definitely think about management in the K League, with one eye on the national squad too.
