Previous South Korea midfielder Park Ji-sung encouraged Manchester United fans to quit singing a melody about him that contains a negative generalization about his country.
The 40-year-old said the tune, which incorporates a reference to Koreans eating canine meat, caused him “distress” while he was at United.
He showed up for United somewhere in the range of 2005 and 2012, assisting them with winning four Premier League titles and the Champions League in 2008.
Park said he was provoked to stand up in the wake of hearing United fans singing the tune at Molineux in August when Wolverhampton Wanderers disclosed their new marking Hwang Hee-chan of South Korea.
“I realize that United fans don’t mean any offense to him for that tune yet I need to teach the fans to stop that word, which is typically nowadays a racial affront to the Korean public,” Park told the club’s webcast, alluding to the reference to canine meat.
“Paying attention to the serenade even after 10 years now, I feel frustrated about the more youthful me who attempted to beat this inconvenience that I felt in those days.
“In Korea, things have changed a great deal. The facts confirm that generally we have eaten canine meat yet nowadays, especially the more youthful age, they truly hate it. It makes distress Korean individuals when they hear that melody.”
Nicknamed “Three-Lunged Park” by fans for his incredible work rate, the midfielder resigned in 2014 as Asia’s most designed player with 19 prizes.
