Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed today that Ji-Sung Park, who has scored 4 in his last 6 league games, will play his last game for a few weeks on Boxin Day. The battling midfielder will be representing Korea in the Asian Cup in Qatar in January.

“Ji is in fantastic form,” said Ferguson. “Unfortunately we are going to lose him for seven matches after December 26. It is disappointing.”

With Antonio Valencia missing until February, this is a massive blow, leaving United with just Nani, Ryan Giggs, Gabriel Obertan and Bebe on the wings.
