Fergie confident Park will sign deal


CHICAGO — Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson 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 the Chicago Fire in a friendly match at Soldier Field on Saturday, Ferguson says Park has been offered a new deal and is certain he will sign it.

"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 club in July 2005, scored a goal in United's 7-0 exhibition rout of the Seattle Sounders on Wednesday.
