Ji-sung Park full of praise for Man Utd youngsters after Cup win

Ji-sung Park was full of praise for Manchester United's young players after Tuesday's Carling Cup victory over QPR.

The Korean winger lined up alongside the likes of Darron Gibson, Jonny Evans and Rafael in a fourth-round tie which was settled by Carlos Tevez's penalty 15 minutes from time.

Park told ManUtd.kr: "Many young players played and, although we only scored one goal, we controlled the match so it was not bad.

"The younger players have been training with the first team so we have no problem playing together, and they did very well."

Park improved as the game unfolded against the Championship side and almost capped his second successive 90-minute run-out with a goal, only to see his rising shot hit the post.

"I thought it was in!" he said. "I felt good when I struck the ball, but sadly it did not go in. I played against Arsenal and am now getting some consistent action, so I was able to keep up my pace throughout the game."

United return to league action against Stoke on Saturday and Park knows there is plenty of time for the champions to overhaul leaders Chelsea.

"We lost against Arsenal, which was obviously not good," Park added. "But we're still in the season and there are many matches ahead, so I'm not worried."
