Frustrated Park mulling retirement from Int’l duty


MANCHESTER – Park Ji-Sung has admitted he is frustrated to be leaving Manchester United when they are top of the Premier League but expects them to still be there when he returns from Asia Cup duty with South Korea.
“Playing for the national team is an honour, but I am also very happy to play for United,
so missing several games is disappointing,” said in-form midfielder Park, who has scored six goals this season. Park,
who has had to balance his commitments with European club sides and at international level for eight years, is thinking of retiring from South Korea duty after the Asia Cup in Qatar. “For now I can’t say anything. Maybe after the Asia Cup I will,
” he said. But first Park still has club work to perform ahead of United’s match against a Sunderland side who held United to a draw at the Stadium of Light and won away at Premier League champions Chelsea last month inh one of the shock results of this season.
“Sunderland have shown what they can do against the big teams,” said Park. “Their victory over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge was a great result.”
