Football Legend Park Ji-sung Retires


SEOUL, South Korea — Park Ji-sung, one of South Korea’s biggest football icons, retired from the sport today at age 33, citing debilitating pain in his surgically repaired right knee.

Park, former national team captain and the first South Korean to play in English Premier League, was the picture of composure, flashing an occasional smile as he wrapped up an illustrious career that included joining South Korea’s historic run to the semifinals at the 2002 FIFA World Cup.
