Former Man Utd Star Goes Back To School!

A former Manchester United star, who won the UEFA Champions League under Sir Alex Ferguson, has gone back to school. Can you guess who it is?

Former South Korea international Park Ji-sung was a favourite at Old Trafford during his seven seasons at the club, with his hard work never going unnoticed.

It turns out that Park's hard work never ended when he retired from the game – he has now decided to go back to school to study for a prestigious Master's Degree in Management, Law and Humanities of Sport. 

The former UCL and Premier League winner begins his studies at a university in Leicester, but they will also take him to Milan and Switzerland. 

"One of my colleagues said it had been a great experience and though many players go into coaching or management, I wanted to improve my knowledge of football around the pitch and then perhaps work in the South Korean football league," the United ambassador told De Montfort University's website.

Do you think more former footballers should follow in Park's footsteps?
