Park Ji-sung: I realized that I am not a coach after watching Hiddink and Ferguson 

Former Korea international Park Ji-sung has denied the prospect of becoming a coach, but he still desires to work in football administration to contribute to the development of the game in Korea and Asia.

During an interview with Yahoo Japan, Park said: “The coaching role cannot run from stress 365 days a year. I watched Hiddink and Ferguson at close quarters and I realized that I am not a coach.”

“To become a good coach, it is important to be equipped with tactics and strategy,” the 36-year-old added.

“But first of all, you need to have strong leadership. In terms of that, I cannot be exactly the same as Hiddink or Ferguson.

Park has also been working as an honorary ambassador for the 2018 Pyeong Chang Winter Olympics. 

The Korean football legend completed his FIFA Master Course earlier this year. In July, he became the first Korean to be appointed to the advisory panel to the law-making International Football Association Board (IFAB).
