Former national football team captain Park Ji-sung has taken his first step as a football administrator with his appointment to the Asian Football Confederation's Social Responsibility Committee.
The Korea Football Association said Thursday that the AFC has finalized the lists of standing committee members for the next four years, and Park and other eight Koreans are appointed.
Park led Korea to the semifinal of the 2002 World Cup in Korea and Japan, and was part of the 2010 World Cup team in South Africa that advanced to the round of 16 for the first time on foreign turf.
Park retired from the national team in 2011 and from all football in May last year. He has been club ambassador for his former team Manchester United of the English Premier League and is focusing on charity activities through the JS Foundation he founded.
