Ji's winning feeling

While most supporters were steeling themselves for extra-time on Tuesday night, Reds midfielder Ji-sung Park says he was always confident United would nick a winner in normal time.

With scores locked at 2-2 and the clock creeping towards 90 minutes, Javier Hernandez finished superbly past Wolves goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey to send United into the fifth round of the Carling Cup.

“When we conceded the second goal I thought we still had time and knew we’d have great chances to score again,” Park told MUTV. “We always believe we can score. Everybody expected him [Hernandez] to score when he came on and we all know he has the ability. It’s important for him to keep scoring goals and we believe he can.”

Park also found the net on Tuesday night, in a second half that featured five goals.

“We played well in the first half but couldn’t finish anything,” he said. “At half-time we said we needed to concentrate more in the last third of the pitch. In the second half we did that and we made some great chances and scored some great goals. Today I scored, which makes it two goals in a row for me in the Carling Cup. It’s great to score in any competition.”

In keeping with tradition, Sir Alex shuffled his pack for the Carling Cup tie. He handed Ben Amos his second senior appearance, Bebe his first senior start and sent on 17-year-old Ravel Morrison for a short cameo once Hernandez had sealed the win.

“Manchester United has always had talented youth players and has always given opportunities to young players,” Park said. “It makes the squad stronger and from this opportunity they’ll improve and gain more confidence. It’s good for their future.”
