Manchester United midfielder Park Ji-sung will be out of action for four weeks with a hamstring injury, manager Alex Ferguson has revealed.
The South Korean only returned to training last week after a month away on international duty at the Asian Cup.
“We got a blow on Saturday morning with the news that Park Ji-sung did his hamstring on Friday afternoon in training,” Ferguson said on the club website (www.manutd.com).
“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 will miss the Premier League trips to Chelsea, Liverpool and Wigan Athletic and the first leg of the Champions League last 16 tie against Marseille.
