Park demands United reaction

Manchester United midfielder Park Ji-Sung is calling for a reaction from his side after their FA Cup fourth round defeat to Liverpool.

The defeat leaves United fighting on just two fronts for the remainder of the season, having been knocked out of the Carling Cup, and demoted to the Europa League.

United face Stoke City in the Premier League on Tuesday night, as they look to crank up the pressure on leaders Manchester City.

"We must quickly forget about this game, move on and look to the future," Park said.

"We controlled the ball which is what we wanted before the game," he added.

"We did that well but that couldn't get the win for us.

"In the team meeting, we talked about trying to keep possession and then make chances. We did that and that's why we played very well.

"But then we lost concentration for a moment and ended up giving them the goal to make it 2-1. Everyone was quiet afterwards because we all feel disappointed."

The South Korean international netted his third goal of the season against Liverpool on Saturday, during a season where his opportunities, ahead of the likes of Ashley Young, Nani and Antonio Valencia, have been limited.

However, with Young and Nani currently out injured, Park has been handed the opportunity to stamp his mark on his seventh season at Old Trafford.

With just 18 months remaining on his current deal at the 19-time league champions, Park will be looking for further opportunities to impress in order to win a new deal.

Park played a pivotal role in United reaching the Champions League final, but floundered in the final against the brilliance of Barcelona at Wembley.
