English Premiership

Park grounded

LONDON, February 15 – Manchester United midfielder Park Ji-Sung faces up to four weeks on the sidelines after suffering a hamstring injury, the English Premier League giants confirmed Tuesday.

The South Korean star, who retired from international football after playing in last month’s Asian Cup, sustained the injury in training with United last week, manager Sir Alex Ferguson said on the club’s website.

"We got a blow on Saturday morning with the news that Park Ji-sung did his hamstring on Friday afternoon in training," Ferguson said.

"It was very unfortunate because it was his last kick of the ball in training as well.

"We were really looking forward to having him back after being away for a month at the Asian Cup. He’ll be out for up to a month, which is a blow to us."

Park has been a key member of United’s squad this season, giving Ferguson a valuable wide option in the absence of Antonio Valencia who suffered a long-term ankle injury in September.

Ferguson confirmed however that Valencia had now returned to training at the weekend and would soon be available for selection.
