ALL eyes are on South Korean workhorse Park Ji Sung as he trains with his new team Queens Park Rangers in Kota Kinabalu.
The 31-year-old midfielder, signed from Manchester United a week ago, is tipped to lead the English Premier League team that fancy a top 10 finish next season.
Ji Sung has been the main attraction for the team that arrived here two days ago for a friendly match with a Sabah selection tomorrow at the Likas Stadium.
They had an hour long drill at the Universiti Malaysia Sabah Stadium under manager Mark Hughes and a small army of fans.
QPR chief executive officer Philip Beard yesterday said the South Korean, nicknamed the "oxygen tank" for his work-rate, was a strong favourite to put on the skipper's arm band but the final decision will be by Hughes.
Ji Sung was one of six off season signings by QPR. The others were Ryan Nelsen, Andy Johnson, Rob Green, Samba Diakite and loan signing Fabio da Silva who is also from Manchester United.
"With the signings these past few weeks we are serious about strengthening the squad for the next season," Beard said.
Veteran defender Clint Hill said Ji Sung's arrival was a boost for the team because of his experience playing in the European Champions League and the Premier League.
"The team is eyeing a top 10 finish and hopefully, it would not be as dramatic as last season," he said referring to their relegation battle in the EPL.
