Queens Park Rangers midfielder Park Ji-Sung has slammed any claims that he is retiring by saying that he will stay with the west London club for 'a couple more years'. 

The 32-year-old was recently linked with quiting football at the end of next season after comments from the player's father.

The South Korea international has insisted that he has no plans of retiring or moving and is happy at Loftus Road.

The midfielder joined from current league leader Manchester United for £2million at the start of the season but has hardly been able to feature due to injuries hampering his first team opportunities.

Also in this time he found himself stripped of the captaincy by manager Harry Redknapp, but harbours no hard feelings towards the boss understanding the decision after spending three-months on the sidelines.

The former Manchester United man has distanced himself from any speculation claiming he plans to retire at the end of next season.

"My contract runs until next season and I have tried my best. [I'll keep playing for] a couple more years. We will stay up and still be in the Premier League so don't worry about that," he told QPR podcast 'Open All R's'.

"We still have eight games [left] and everyone knows we still have a chance. [The squad] have to be together until the end of the season to get out of this situation and we still believe we can do that."
