ManU Names Park JS `Player of the Month`

English soccer powerhouse Manchester United has named Park Ji-sung player of the month for March, the team announced yesterday.

Park was picked through an Internet vote held on United`s homepage. Among the 16,000 fans who voted, 38 percent chose the Korean midfielder.

Wayne Rooney ranked second with 23 percent, followed by Ryan Giggs with 21 percent and Carlos Tevez 15 percent.

With the prize, Park automatically qualifies for United`s player of the year award.

Rooney was named the team`s top player for October and November last year; Tevez for August; Darren Fletcher for September; Michael Carrick for November; Dimitar Berbatov for January this year; and Ryan Giggs in February.

United`s homepage cited Park`s stellar play against Newcastle March 5 and versus Fulham March 8 in the FA Cup.
