Park set for United return

Ji-Sung Park is on target for a Manchester United return over the festive period after stepping up his comeback from a long-term injury. The 26-year-old has been out of action since damaging knee ligaments in a Premier League game against Blackburn Rovers in March. But United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed the South Korea international is now close to a first-team return after resuming full training. "Ji-Sung Park is now training with the first-team and should be ready in a couple of weeks," he told the club's official website. "He'll be back in the fold in about two weeks' time, I think. He's a terrific young player and his return will be a great boost for us. "He gives us more options going forward, which is good news." Park could return in time for United's clash with Everton at Old Trafford on December 23.
