Red Devils tour

Man United's Park anticipates S.Korea homecoming

April 30, 2009

Park Ji-sung cannot wait to star in front of his adoring Korean public for Manchester United.

The Red Devils have confirmed they will tackle FC Seoul on the third leg of their Asia Tour this summer.

United's second visit to the World Cup Stadium In Seoul on July 24 should be one of the most memorable aspects of the four-country trip, if the reception they received two years ago is anything to go by.

Park missed out on that occasion, having been selected as part of his country's squad for the Asian Cup and then picking up an injury.

However, this time there are no competing attractions, meaning - injury permitting - the former PSV Eindhoven player will be the star attraction.

"It is my second visit since I joined United," Park told the club's Korean website. "For Korean fans, TV is the only way to see my performances."

"But, on the tour this summer, they can see me and I can see them. I am looking forward to it."

United had already confirmed Kuala Lumpur and Hangzhou in China as the first and last stops on a tour that also includes a four-team tournament in Munich.

They will also visit Indonesia, with that game on July 20 due to be confirmed on Friday.
