Ji-sung Park is delighted to have helped United reach the Champions League final, but warns the Reds must not lose focus on the Premier League title.

The 27-year-old was one of United's un-sung heroes against Barcelona on Tuesday - his tireless work in midfield was a real plus-point on a testing night at Old Trafford.

Reaching the final is a major achievement for Park as he has twice fallen at the same final stage - once with United, once with PSV Eindhoven (ironically, AC Milan thwarted him on both occasions) - although injury would have kept him out last year.

"It’s fantastic," said the Korean international. "It’s difficult to put into words.

"It’s amazing and I’m really looking forward to playing in the final.

"The atmosphere on Tuesday was incredible, I’ve never seen or heard anything like it. The fans gave me extra power."

Considering both United and Barcelona are teams built on an attacking philosophy, chances were surprisingly sparse over the two semi-final ties. It required a different type of performance from the Reds, full of discipline and resilience."We got the win because it was eleven players working hard.

We showed good concentration for the whole 90 minutes," added Ji.

But the Korean star isn't carried away with the thought of taking on Chelsea in Moscow's Luzhniki stadium on 21 May.

Instead, the challenge of beting Avram Grant's men to the title in the final two league matches of the season remains uppermost in his mind.

"We have to remember that we have got two important games before the Champions League final.

"The team spirit is very good after this win, so I am confident we will get good results."

I always liked him too! I've always defended him cos I know he's got quality, he's never going to be a top player but he's an excellent squad player and deserves his Three Lung Park nick name... also for the funny songs alone he was a steal!!

How about the same kind of atmosphere against west Ham, our final home game, massive In that game against Barca the crowd were influencial in our win as they spurred on players like Park and tevez.

I've always defended him too (as you've probably seen floating around in other threads ;)) and I really admire him.

Hes a very good player, and although he has only played for half a season, has been absolutely incredible this season.

I hope he plays in the final, but I just think he'll be over-looked.
