Manchester United midfielder Ji-Sung Park has urged his side to bounce back after last weekend’s 6-1 derby thrashing at the hands of Manchester City, and wants his team to get three points against Everton on Saturday.
Sir Alex Ferguson called the defeat last Sunday the worst day of his football career, as the power of the game in England is seemingly shifting to Manchester’s blue side.
However, the South Korean man wants a reaction from the Premier League champions at Goodison Park on Saturday.
“We have to concentrate and everyone has to turn up to show the City game has not affected us. We have to get over it,” the Asian superstar told Mirror Football.
“We have to put it right on the pitch. Everton is a very important game to us and we have to go there and fight to get the points.
“It’s always difficult there, just look at last season, when we were winning 3-1 and in injury time they scored two goals,” he stated.
Park understands that United will have to keep a close eye on former striker Louis Saha, who has been in excellent form for David Moyes’ men.
“We know his abilities are good when he’s fit. Now he’s on form and on fire. But we can deal with that threat because we know him.
“We have to fight as a team, not just individually,” he concluded.
