Some people are able to pick up other languages more easily than others, and in industries like football, where foreigners are expected to ply their trade abroad while becoming an efficient team member, mastering native languages is a skill that can come in handy.
We find in endlessly fascination to see incredibly bright athletes flitting between their native languages and other dialects they’ve picked up, like Sabah FC’s Park Tae Su.
In his video, talking to the media about their up coming Super League match against JDT, he passionately said that he would like to stay in Sabah.
“This is the first time I’ve played abroad. I love this team.”
“I want to stay here. I want to retire with Sabah. Sabah fans are the best this year.”
Born in Incheon, South Korea, Park Tae Su began his footballing career with Incheon United in 2011. He joined the Malaysian Premier League outfit; Sabah FA, as their sole import defender.
He has since stayed with the team to this day, showcasing his grasp of Bahasa Malaysia and the local Sabahan dialect on his social media.
