Park ready to wait his turn

Arsenal striker Ju Young Park is ready to bide his time and will take his chance when it comes.


The South Korea captain has not made a single Barclays Premier league appearance for the Gunners since he arrived from Monaco.


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will lose Marouane Chamakh and Gervinho to international duty in January, but Park is not assuming he will play more as a result.


“All my team mates are great players,” he told the club’s official website.


“I do not expect a chance for me because a player is unavailable. I will do my best to prepare myself to take any random chances at any time.”


With Chamakh and Gervinho at the Africa Cup of Nations, Wenger will have limited forward options and has said he expects to use more of Park in the second half of the season.


Park, meanwhile, appreciates he has had to work hard to adapt to the rigours of the Barclays Premier League and is just concentrating on learning about his new environment.

“I am new to this club and to the Premier League. I am trying hard to learn more and more,” he added.


The former FC Seoul striker is not letting his lack of playing time get him down, however, and he is adamant he is content with his current situation.


“I don’t worry about getting used to everything or anything. My team-mates are nice to me and I do not have any problems at all regarding training.”


Park has made four appearances for Arsenal and scored his first goal in the Carling Cup win over Bolton.
