CHICAGO - MANCHESTER United manager Alex Ferguson said on Thursday he expects South Korean midfielder Park Ji Sung to sign a contract extension that will keep him with the club for two more years.
Speaking at a news conference in Chicago, where United will face Major League Soccer's Chicago Fire in a friendly on Saturday, Ferguson said Park has been offered a new deal and is certain he will sign.
'He has been offered a new contract, yes,' Ferguson said. 'I'm sure he'll sign it. His career at United has been nothing but excellent, a tremendous professional.'
'And I'm sure he'll accept the new offer, and tie himself to the club for the next two years.'
Park, who joined the English Premier League giants in July 2005, scored a goal in United's 7-0 friendly rout of the Seattle Sounders on Wednesday.
Ferguson and his team had spent almost a week in Seattle, training at the facilities of the NFL's Seattle Seahawks before playing the Sounders of MLS. -- AFP
