Park Ji-sung is confident it won't take long for him to rediscover the form that made him one of Manchester United star performers during the first half of the season.
The South Korea legend included six goals in a series of outstanding performances for the Red Devils prior to his departure for the Asian Cup in December. Unfortunately for Park, when he returned to England just over a month later, he immediately suffered a hamstring injury that kept him out for another six weeks.
"It was frustrating to be injured just after coming back from the Asian Cup," he said. "The tournament wasn't great for me anyway so I was determined to come back and do well for United. Thankfully, I am back now but I realise I must play as well as I was doing before Christmas. I have confidence to do that."
He added: "I have been six years at United and before Christmas I was putting in some of my best performances of my entire time at Old Trafford. I want to reach that level again."
There is some good news for United on the injury front as Anderson made a 45-minute appearance for the reserves on Thursday night and Darren Fletcher is due to return to training after being sidelined for almost a month by a chronic virus.
