London, Mar 23 (ANI): Ace midfielder Park Ji Sung, who played an crucial role in Manchester United's victory on Sunday, drank stinking boiled frog juice to become a man.
The idol of South Korea was considered too weak to ever make it in the game he loved.
But his parents had other ideas and fed him the concoction whose nutrients would help him grow, The Sun reports.
The Manchester United midfielder said: "They said it was good for my health to become stronger and I ate anything that would improve my health."
His father even took a job in a butcher's shop so he could get the best cuts of meat to build up his boy - second course the frog juice.
Park tireless effort for the club and country makes him stand out. And he has a positional sense appreciated by all his teammates.
Fullback Patrice Evra said: "I have never seen a player as intelligent. I tell him he needs to bring out a video because his movement is such a good example for young players. Park shows it's about the team, not individuals."
Park said: "To score the winner in a derby is a fantastic feeling. Doing it in front of the Stretford End was unbelievable."
Park's goal put United back on top of the Premier League. (ANI)
