Park: 2010 World Cup my last

SEOUL - Manchester United and South Korea midfielder Park Ji-sung will play in his third and final World Cup tournament in South Africa next year, local newspapers said on Monday.

"The World Cup in 2010 will be my last," Park told reporters at South Korea's training facility, the daily Chosun Ilbo said.

"I don't think my stamina will last until the next one in 2014," said the 28-year-old, who was instrumental in his country's run to the last four of the 2002 finals on home soil.

South Korea have already qualified for their seventh straight World Cup finals appearance, with Park tied as the team's top scorer during this campaign on four goals.
