QPR midfielder Park Ji-Sung has denied reports that he has decided to retire at the end of next season according to talkSport.

Reports in recent days had suggested that Park was becoming frustrated with his injury-hit form this season and was ready to call it a day once his contract expires in June 2014.

That news came as a disappointment to the Korean’s fans in his native country as they are keen for him to have one last swansong in the Korean K-League.

But the player has moved to pour cold water on speculation that he is set to hang up his boots.

The former Manchester United star insisted he remained committed to QPR and intended to continue playing in London for a couple more seasons at least.

Park insisted he would not desert the club should they suffer relegation to the Championship. QPR are currently bottom of the Premier League table and face a mammoth task to avoid relegation as they are seven points from safety with just eight games remaining.

Park denied he was unhappy with QPR boss Harry Redknapp, who stripped the player of the club captaincy during his three month spell on the sidelines.

Following his spell at Old Trafford, Park is the most decorated Asian player is history becoming the first Asian player to lift the Champions League during a successful seven year spell at the club.
