Former Manchester United and PSV midfielder Park Ji-Sung has retired from football at the age of 33.Park, who finished his career back at PSV on loan from Queens Park Rangers, said knee issues meant he could no longer play at the highest level.

"I'm leaving with no regrets," said Park - the first Asian player to play in a Champions League final.

"I enjoyed playing football," added Park, who played 100 times for South Korea and scored at three World Cups.

"I have achieved more than I thought I would. I'm truly grateful for all the support I have received and I will live the rest of my life thinking how I can pay it back."
Park scored 27 goals in 205 appearances and won 11 trophies at United before joining QPR in 2012.
