COOK BACKS PARK
The former Hoops midfielder Lee Cook has suggested that the QPR midfielder Park Ji sung has not been performing well for the London club since moving from Manchester United in the summer. He has also criticised the South Korean midfielder for moving to the capital for one final payday more than anything else.
The 31-year-old has played very little football for Manchester United over the last two seasons, but was an extremely integral part of the club prior to that. The South Korean was finally sold to the London club QPR for around £ 2 million in the summer. He has been made captain of the QPR team by the manager Mark Hughes.
However, the club has had a lot of problems in the first few matches of the campaign. Despite spending a lot of money on high profile players over the summer, they have certainly not improved are currently bottom of the Premier league table with only two points. A lot of fingers have been pointing to the manager Mark Hughes for the poor results, but the former Hoops midfielder Lee Cook believes that players like Park Ji sung should take more responsibility and not just concentrate on picking up the wages.
"Every time I saw Park at United, he was a workhorse. For me, he doesn't seem to be working as hard as he did there. People I know think a few of them are there for a pay-day. At halfway through the season, you will be able to tell whether this is true or not. 'I don’t think Tony Fernandes will muck about. When it was Neil Warnock’s time to go it was "see you later" - he didn’t hold back. Just because it’s Mark Hughes and a big name it means nothing," said Lee Cook in a recent interview.
