Manchester United midfielder Park Ji-sung returned to Korea this week to present his thesis proposal for his master's degree.
The 30-year-old sports icon, who currently calls England home, is in the fourth semester of his graduate course in sports science at Myongji University. He is planning to write a thesis about ways of improving youth soccer in Korea. In it, he will discuss the current situations of the sport among young people in Korea and propose ways of improvement by using several case studies in Europe.
Park invited three members of the school's thesis committee, including his academic adviser Park Jong-sung, who serves as the university's dean of the College of Arts and Physical Education, to the Park Ji-sung Football Center on Wednesday morning to hand in his proposal.
After graduating from the physical education department of the university in 2007, Park began his master's program last year.
