Falando para QPR’s official website, Park said: “Having played for QPR I am really interested to see how they develop their younger players.

I have learnt lots from the players as well as the coaches.

Park is looking to transfer his talent from the pitch into the dugout after hanging up his boots as the most decorated Asian footballer in history.

But the former midfielder has admitted management is a completely different ball game to being out on the pitch.

Ele adicionou: “Chris [Ramsey] has lots of experience and I see how he listens to people.

He listens to opinions and then makes his own decision based on the best way he can influence players. That is why he has such a good reputation as a coach.

It has surprised me how much I have learnt. It is not just about your skill or ability, it is about your mentality too.

People might think being a coach is quite similar to being a player. Para mim, I have realised it is totally different.

He won the League Cup three-times and the Club World Cup with United too, as well as a number of trophies during his time in Japan and the Netherlands with PSV Eindhoven.
