Barcelona have rightly been doing some homework ahead of this week Champions league Final showdown with Manchester United, and no doubt they will have come to the same conclusions as most.

Vidic and Ferdinand are without question the best centre halve combination in world football, Anderson is like a bulldog in midfield, and Rooney and Ronaldo given the chance would tear anyone apart.

But whilst Barca ponder on how to get through United's water tight defence, aswell as defend the majestic Ronaldo and stop the workhorse Rooney they may have taken eyes away from Park Ji Sung. 

The South Korean has been simply awesome this season, In the wake of last years personal disappointment of being left out of the squad for the Final in Moscow, Park has flourished putting in a number of very good displays for Fergies Mighty Red Devils.

Now he has the chance to shine on the biggest stage and he will not disappoint, he attacks with precision and accuracy always seeking a killer ball for the Ronaldo's and Rooney's, his engine seems to just keep going and going.

Park is without doubt the most improved player at Manchester United this season, he has shown himself to be a reliable member of the squad who is capable of putting aside his personal disappointments to take one for the team and it is this attitude and commitment that will endear him to his manager, I have no doubt in my mind that Sir Alex will repay Park with a starting place, he has earned it.
