Park Ji-sung of Manchester United won two accolades from the U.K. Guardian on Monday. Park was named “man of the match” and responsible for the “best moment” on the pitch in his team’s playoff against Tottenham Hotspur. For Korean fans, however, the match became bittersweet when 36 minutes into the first half, Park Ji-sung snatched the ball from Lee Young-pyo at the center of the penalty area. Rooney then converted Park’s pass into a goal. “Lee Young-Pyo, a right-footed left-back, could barely raise an apologetic arm after Park Ji-sung took the ball off him inside Tottenham's own penalty area to supply Rooney for the softest of his 19 goals this season. Park, the game's outstanding performer, made it a torrid afternoon for his South Korean international team-mate.” The paper hailed Park’s efforts saying, “His indefatigable running and desire to outwit his international team-mate Lee Young-pyo were a constant source of worry to the Tottenham defense.” Another Park moment became the “best moment” of the match. The Guardian hailed “Park's tenacity in dispossessing Lee inside the penalty area for Rooney's second -- and ultimately decisive -- goal.” The satellite channel Sky Sports reported Park overflowed with passion, and gave him seven points for the game, putting him second behind Rooney’s eight. Meanwhile, an insider with Park’s management firm FS Corporation said the athlete felt “awkward” about discussing the assist.
