The Korean claimed 36 per cent of the votes for the award, beating Nani into first-place - the Portuguese winger came close though with 28 per cent of the electorate. The other nominees, Nemanja Vidic, Michael Carrick and Rafael all made strong cases for the accolade, but Park did enough to clinch it.
The Goal of the Month category was equally competitive. But Berbatov, who started and finished a sweeping attacking move that epitomised the rampant style of United's 7-1 victory over Blackburn, came out on top with 35 per cent of the votes.
That such a team effort came out on top speaks volumes for its quality, especially after edging out Bebe's stunning volley for the Reserves and Nani's own individual effort in the triumph over Rovers.
