Ji-Sung Park bade an emotional farewell to Manchester United supporters after ending his seven year stay with the club by joining Queens Park Rangers.

Mark Hughes has completed one of the coups of the summer by securing the signature of the former South Korea captain, who moves to Loftus Road for a reported £2 million.

It was a deal as impressive as it was unexpected, with Park both a popular and important member of Sir Alex Ferguson's first-team squad at Old Trafford.

The 31-year-old played a hand in winning eight major honours during his time with the club - including four Premier League titles - and scored 27 goals in 205 appearances for the Red Devils.

Park will forever be fondly remembered by United fans for his performances for the 19-time title winners, and the former PSV Eindhoven made sure to pay tribute to the supporters following the confirmation of his departure on Monday.

"My time at United will last in my heart for the rest of my life," he told ManUtd.com.

"It’s been a great privilege to be part of such a great team, to have won so much and to have played with special teammates and for the greatest manager in the game.

"I would like to thank everybody at the club who give their best every single day to put every player in the best condition to enjoy their football and achieve success."
