Former Manchester United midfielder Park Ji-Sung announced his retirement from football on Wednesday.

The 33-year-old South Korean said he could not continue to play at the highest level because of knee issues, but added that he was leaving the game without any regrets.

Park joined Man United from PSV Eindhoven in 2005 and went on to become the first Asian player to feature in a Champions League final.

He ended his club career at PSV after being loaned back to his first European club by Queens Park Rangers.

He earned 100 caps for South Korea and starred for his nation at the 2002 World Cup which was co-hosted by Japan and South Korea.

He retired from International football in 2011.
