ManU South Korean is summer search favourite

Park Ji-Sung's star was already rising before Manchester United signed him from PSV Eindhoven in June but the South Korean midfielder's profile has reached new heights following his summer switch to Old Trafford. Park was the most searched-for footballer on search engine Megasoccer.com last month.

Megasoccer's new language filter allows users to search for results in any one of 77 different languages - from English, to Korean, to Dutch - a particularly handy tool for finding out the facts about the latest signings in world football.

Park shot to fame in the 2002 World Cup in Japan and South Korea, where he starred for the joint hosts. Manager Guus Hiddink was so impressed he took him to PSV, and the skilful winger was also prominent in PSV's superb Champions League run last season, which saw them narrowly beaten in the semi-finals by AC Milan.
