London, July 10 : South Korean footballer Ji-Sung Park, who joined Queens Park Rangers on a two-year deal, has said that it was his decision to quit Manchester United.
The midfielder, 31, ended his seven-year stay at Old Trafford by sealing a five million pound switch to Loftus Road.
"I was the one who said I wanted to leave the club because I'd had a great offer. I was the one who said it to Manchester United. It was a difficult decision because United are a good club and everybody wants to play there," The Sun quoted Park, as saying.
"But last season I didn't play as much. I would still have had a good chance to play for Man United but QPR made me a very good offer and their ambitions and plans were interesting for me. That's why I made the decision to leave. If QPR hadn't explained their future I might have stayed," he added.
Park became the first South Korean to play in the Premier League when United signed him from Dutch giants PSV Eindhoven for four million pounds in 2005. (ANI)
