When three legendary Manchester United soccer players landed in Hong Kong to help celebrate the 100th anniversary of Kansai Paint company, you can bet we were ready to greet them as soon as they landed.
After all, who can say they’ve had the chance to meet the retired trio of South Korean midfielder Park Ji-sung, Serbian defender Nemanja Vidic and Swedish winger Jesper Blomqvist – all at the same time?
Kansai Paint, based in Osaka, Japan, was founded in 1918. It now operates branches in the United States, Mexico, Africa, Europe, the Middle East, India and Southeast Asia. To help mark its 100th anniversary, the three players were in the city to play soccer against 100 children and, judging by how they performed, it was obvious they “let” the youngsters win, 2-1.
Check out our little fun interview where we ask them important questions, such as how they celebrated after signing with the English Premier League club, why the local South Korean press thought Park’s signing by Manchester United was “fake” – and whether they would prefer to snack on chicken feet or duck tongue.
