Park Ji-sung, South Korea's iconic sportsman in football and former Manchester United midfielder, will lecture about his experience, skills and philosophy through an online sports class, according to the country's web search giant Naver.

Naver said in a statement Tuesday that different videos running for five minutes would be released three times starting on October 19 as part of "The Legend Class", a video class campaign starring sports stars.

The 36-year-old former will be the first to appear in the campaign. He will share tips and thoughts about football, Naver said, adding its campaign will be provided in six languages: Korean, English, Japanese, Vietnamese, Thai and Chinese.

Park is respected as one of South Korea's greatest football players. Until his 2014 retirement, he represented the country at three FIFA Worldcups.
