Park Ji-Sung announces retirement

Former Manchester United midfielder Park Ji-Sung has announced his retirement from football at the age of 33 due to problems with his knee, according to the Mirror.

The former South Korea international, who spent last season on loan with PSV Eindhoven, moved to England in 2005, spending seven seasons at Old Trafford before moving to Queens Park Rangers.

During his time under former United boss Sir Alex Ferguson, Park made 2005 appearances, scoring 27 goals and winning four Premier League titles, three league cups, the Champions League and the World Club Cup.

However, his fortunes were rather different at Loftus Road, where he was relegated to the Championship in his only season playing for the Hoops.

Following their drop to the second tier, he returned to the club he played for prior to Manchester United – PSV – where he scored twice in twenty-seven appearances whilst internationally, he was capped 100 times.
