Park: I'll only get better

Ji-sung Park was delighted to pick up ManUtd.com’s Player of the Month award for March and vowed to improve further as the title race heats up.

“It’s a great pleasure for me,” Park told ManUtd.com from South Korea’s training camp, where he’s preparing for a crunch World Cup qualifier against North Korea.

“It’s the first time I’ve won Player of the Month since joining United and I agree that this season has been one of the best on a personal level.

“The best thing in March is that we progressed to the Champions League quarter-finals; the worst moments were losing against Liverpool and Fulham.”

Park was a deserving recipient of the March award after fine performances against Newcastle, Internazionale and Liverpool. He also scored a superb solo goal at Craven Cottage in the FA Cup sixth round.

But despite his good form, the South Korean insists there’s more to come.

“I know I can improve, especially in the goals department,” he said. “I’d like to thank all the fans who voted for me and I promise I’ll do my best and try to perform even better during the last few months of the season.”

Voting for United's Player of the Year award opens on Wednesday 1 April.
