Career Park Ji Sung Reloaded


Recommended Posts

Park Ji Sung Reloaded


I had a long think the last few days about restarting one of my favourite save ideas that @Kanegan posted a few games back. The Park Ji Sung challenge.

I come closest to finishing the career idea in FMM19 when I took my Park Ji Sung to Watford. Last years attempt saw me take my Park Ji Sung to Everton where I won the champions league but come up by not finishing the save to the end. 

Career Rules

Load up Holland and England database as a minimum 

You must sign a Korean midfielder who will be your 'Park Ji Sung'

- x2 Dutch Titles

- x1 KNVB Cup

- x1 Dutch Super Cup

Then move to England and take charge of any Premier League club and win the following

- x4 League Titles

- x3 Carabao Cups

- x4 Community Shields 

- x1 Champions League 

- x1 World Club Championship

The Chosen Park Ji Sung 

Step up........

Kim Tae-Hwan 

20yrs old Winger


Transfers In/Out


Signed Carmo and Geromel to shore up the centre of defence. Geromels experience will be an advantage to mentoring Carmo who is a young cb from Braga. 

I signed Stark to support defence and midfield as the midfield seemed to lack depth after I sold Rosario (£20m was too good to turn down).

I loaned x4 youngsters with big futures in Gilmour, Bellingham, Badiashile and Carnesecchi who I have used in previous years saves. I intend to use them all during the Cup runs. 


I allowed Rosario to go for £20m which allowed me to bring in some additional players. Thomas I sold as Wiltshire on a free was a worthwhile trade. 

I used Nyland as a make weight when I signed Carmo knocking £5m of their asking price. 

Season 1 begins! 

Thanks for reading

Look forward to seeing how you do mate, Stark has been one of my favourite CB’s for a good 2/3 years on FMM, so I like seeing him get used! Good luck 😁

Typically my go to signing if possible as you can get him under £20m and his versatility works wonders. I normally retrain him as a rb and lb on longterm saves just so I can play him often lol.

Thanks for commenting much appreciated

Good luck with this mate.  I have used this man in the past and he develops rapidly within a few seasons.

Thanks for your comments mate

Again thanks for sharing the save idea.

Hoping to be posted on the leader board this time round!

Season 1 - Complete

The season was pretty eventful with us going unbeaten for a fair amount of games however injuries caused us a few headaches entering January as the backup squad didn't have the quality to finish off games.

Overall I was happy to win the Title but disappointed with Europe and our Cup run.

I settled with a tactic that I have tried in previous saves and one that allowed me to play my Park Ji Sung in the correct positions. 

I thoroughly enjoyed this first season and saw some decent improves on Hwan. He managed to get one hatrick this season which I was buzzing about. Rating wise he was pretty consistent and hoping season 2 he improves even more. 


We won the league at the first time of asking but struggled in Europe and also in the Dutch Cup with a tough run getting to the Semi Finals. I used a fair amount of youth throughout the cup run so this may of played a part in my downfall. 




Star Players 

Kim Tae-Hwan improved throughout the season but found it tough going with me retraining him as AMR. Some good greens potentially coming within the next season hopefully. Pretty much doubled in value also which is a plus. 



The following players formed the base of my side for Season 1 and I enjoyed bringing through some of the youth talent such as Ihattaren and Madueke.

Stark and Carmo formed a solid partnership in the defence and Geromel proved to be a solid backup throughout the season. His experience also helped with mentoring Carmo.








I ended up struggling with a few injuries during the later part of the season so I signed Daniel Sturridge to add some experience and firepower to a strike force that was depleted to the point of Gotze leading the line!


I also signed Antonio Valencia to support with Dumfries and Teze both out injured. 


Career Objectives - Holland

- Dutch League Titles - 1/2

- KNVB Cup - 0/1

- Dutch Super Cup - 0/1

Thanks for reading, I will post more in detail game screenshots throughout the Season 2 update.

Season 2 

As we entered Season 2 my main objectives were to finish off the Holland part of the career and also continue to develop Hwan (my Park Ji Sung)

I was pretty happy entering season 2 with the squad I had, although I had it in my head that the centre of midfield needed a additional signings and that's where I aimed to focus my transfer business.

Transfers In/Out

I have posted the full season transfers so everyone has clarity of the signings made in the summer and also in January.


I rebuilt the midfield in order to allow me to play one holding midfielder with two midfielders in front (either AP and CM or BBM/CM), my holding midfielder played as a DLP. 

With Stark and Carmo also able to support the DLP position I focused mainly on the two midfielder roles in front of them.

Soumare and Gagliardini were both transfer listed and fitted the mould of what I wanted, I had used them on previous years games. Hagi I signed purely after watching some Scottish Football highlights and fancied testing him out. He proved a worthy gamble and slotted into the AP role in my tactical change in January.

Diop was transfer listed and I signed him to provide backup to my main CBs after I allowed Geromel to leave for free. 

Wijndal was signed to be my starting left back as both left backs at the club (one being Max) I didn't rate.

The others were signed to either allow me to sell them on for additional cash or to place in reserves as backup. 

Some youth players I signed with the aim of using throughout our cup run.




Malen I sold to A Madrid for £33m as I was using Troy Parrot (Loan) as my main striker. Moting was signed for free but I moved him on pretty sharpish.

All the other players had minimal to no input in the team for the coming season and spent most of the time in the reserves. 

Future youth talent was sent out on loan to gain experience.




Season Results

First game up was against Ajax in The Dutch Super Cup - if I won this I would therefore complete another part of the challenge. 


We won the game comfortably beating Ajax in the first half of the game.

Below are some of my favourite results of the season -


Absolutely love a Derby Win!




Lost the above game but what an end to end tie!


Powerful performance against Sparta resulting in us running riot with a 5-0 win.


Results were pretty consistent throughout the whole season with minimal upsets. 

We romped to win the league meaning the league titles aspect of the Holland save was completed.


Unfortunately we lost to Man Utd on away goals afters drawing 1-1 on the second leg. 


We romped to a 4-0 win in the Dutch Cup resulting in the final part of the Holland aspect completed. 


Recieved a few decent job offers throughout the season which I couldn't accept but worth sharing.



Star Mans Performance

Another solid season saw Kim Tae-Hwan develop into a decent player who looks a solid Park Ji Sung (Version 2).

He played a few less games this season mostly due to International Duty and a couple of niggling injuries. He managed to win Asia Nations most valuable player award whilst away with his Country.


A fair few greens developing and his value has pretty much trebled since I signed him in Season 1.

I retrained him as a AMR and he had finally learnt the position so is no longer a red or orange indicator for that position. 

Six goals and five assists is not a bad performance considering.



Manager Overview




Career Objectives - Holland

- Win Dutch League Title - 2/2

- Win DNVB Cup - 1/1

- Win Dutch Super Cup - 1/1

As you can see the Dutch part of the challenge is now complete and I now need to head to England take over a Premier League club and sign my Park Ji Sung.

Sneak Peak at Season 3


Will I take the job?
