Ferdinand labelled Park a vital member of the United squad, in recognition of seven years service for the Red Devils and Ferdinand insists the winger will be sorely missed.
"Ji's a fantastic player and a real players' player. He's been greatly appreciated by the other lads and the fans of our club over the years. He's been a great servant and never been any trouble," he told MUTV.
"He's just a real selfless player who has always played for his team-mates and he was part of a very successful period for the club.
"I'm sad to see him go because he's a really good lad as well - after three or four years he really came out of his shell and was one of the lads, making a lot of jokes. As I said I'm sad to see him go as he's a really nice guy."

He added: "We'll have to try and get in his hotel room the night before we play them and make sure he doesn't sleep so he's not running around against us at a hundred miles an hour for the whole game!
"Ji is just a great player who is really appreciated by everyone in the squad."
