Park Ji-sung, who aspires to a career in football administration, has taken his first step toward becoming a sports administrator. Park enrolled in a course at De Montfort University in the U.K. to earn a Master's accreditation.
The former Manchester United player will spend three months at the university.
"I wanted to improve my knowledge of football around the pitch and then perhaps work in the [Korean] football league," Park told De Montfort's website on Wednesday.
In March, Park was accepted to the international Master's program in management, law, and humanities of sport, which is run by the Swiss Centre International d'Etude du Sport (CIES) and endorsed by FIFA.
As part of the one-year postgraduate program, Park will take courses at two other universities in Italy and Switzerland.
