Man Utd hero Park: Hiddink and Sir Alex turned me OFF coaching

Manchester United hero Park Ji-sung admits he won't be ever entering coaching.

Park says his experience playing for Guus Hiddink with PSV Eindhoven and for South Korea actually put him off!

"I studied closely Guus Hiddink and Sir Alex Ferguson and discovered that I'm not a trainer and never will be," Park told Yahoo Sports.

"Tactics and strategy are important and I think I have good ideas about it, but you must be a strong leader and can handle players on a psychological level.

"That could be Hiddink and Ferguson at their best, but not me. The best trainers have a lot of charisma, motivate a team and have a good relationship with the press."
