QPR midfielder Park preparing for retirement

Park Ji-sung is nearing retirement according to his father.

The 32-year old South Korean midfielder left Manchester United to sign a two-year deal with QPR in July last year and could end his career when that deal expires in the European summer of 2014.

"My son has had difficult times at QPR this season; it was a new experience to him," Park's father Sung-jong said in an interview with Sports Chosun.

"He's never had times like this with PSV Eindhoven or Manchester United.

"Nobody knows the future; maybe he could play one more year with a new team after next season. But I think (he) has made his mind up to retire."

Park Snr added: "He won't play in the K-League. He wants Korean football to be popular but he wouldn't be able to perform well.

"He thinks he's played enough."
