PARK SHOULD MOVE
South Korean national team manager Myung-Bo Hong has said that Arsenal player Park Chu-young should decide to move away from the club and find a new club immediately if he is to feature for the national team in the World Cup.
Park Chu-young was a high-profile signing for Arsenal in 2011, but many predicted that he was brought into the club only to sell more shirts in Asia. It has proven to be right because he has rarely featured for the Arsenal first team. He is regarded as the country's number one striker, which has put Hong in a difficult position.
He stated recently that Park Chu-young must find a new club immediately where he can play regular football. This is unlikely to be a problem for new Borussia Dortmund signing Son Heung-min. The 21-year-old moved to the German club for $ 15 million and he is expected to play a key role for the former champions. They had a lot of success with another Asian in the form of Shinji Kagawa a few years ago. Now, he will be hoping to replicate the success. Son Heung-min has said that he is already looking forward to playing in the Bundesliga, which he regards as one of the best leagues in the world.
Son Heung-min is also looking to make his impact in the Champions league as well. "I wanted to stay in the Bundesliga and Leverkusen and Dortmund wanted me. Both teams play in the Champions League but I thought Dortmund would use rotation more than Leverkusen. That's why I chose Leverkusen. It's really important to play regularly at my age," said the 21-year-old attacking midfielder ahead of the new season. Korea are currently second in their World Cup qualifying group, but they are only two points behind the leaders Iran.
