Former Manchester United player Park won't make World Cup comeback
Former Manchester United midfielder Park Ji-sung has dismissed reports of an international comeback ahead of this summer's World Cup and insisted that his retirement from South Korea is final.
Having been out of the international reckoning since 2001, Park had been rumoured to be set for a World Cup appearance for the side he helped reach the semi-final's of the same tournament in 2002.
Speaking with Ilgan Sports, 32 year-old Park said of another stint with South Korea: "There has been no possibility for me to come back to the national team. I can definitely say it's 0%."
Having reached the landmark of 100 caps for his country, Park is a national icon in South Korea and the man who captained them in 2010 in South Africa is the only Asian player to have bagged in three consecutive World Cups.
Park enjoyed a stellar time at Manchester United between 2005 and 2012, winning the Premier League four times, the League Cup on three occasions and the Champions League in 2008.
