Manchester United midfielder Park Ji-Sung is set for a return after the international break to face West Ham, according to Sir Alex Ferguson.

“I’d have loved to have given Park Ji-Sung a bit of game (against Bolton), but when we went to 10 men we were hamstrung a bit there,” Ferguson told MUTV.

“But I get Ji back in two weeks’ time, away at West Ham.”


The Korean international has been out since mid February with a hamstring injury, and a month before that was on international duty at the Asia Cup. With the international break this weekend, Ferguson believes the timing has been perfect for the Manchester United squad.

“It’s come at an absolutely fantastic time for us,” Ferguson said.

“We’ve got the bonus of two weeks’ rest to patch up the injuries, and hopefully that'll be the biggest break of all,” the Manchester manager said.

And Ferguson was not just positive about Ji-Sung’s return from injury – he was also almost certain other big names would be back in time for Manchester United and West Ham’s clash.

“Vidic will be back, Darren Fletcher hopefully will be back and hopefully if, bit by bit, we can get them all together we’ll have a great chance,” Ferguson said.
