K-League's Suwon, Gyeongnam to meet PSV Eindhoven

South Korean clubs Gyeongnam FC and Suwon Blueings have announced that they will take on Dutch giants PSV Eindhoven in exhibition matches in May.

Gyeongnam will host PSV at the Changwon Football Centre in Changwon, 440kms southeast of Seoul, on May 24 two days after taking on their K-League rivals Suwon.

Eindhoven veteran and South Korea great Park Ji-sung, who is on loan from English QPR, will be present for both matches with Gyeongnam eyeing it as a great opportunity for their club to test themselves a top European outfit.

"Park Ji-sung is expected to play at least half of the match in Changwon," a club spokesman for Gyeongnam said on Wednesday.

"It will be our first friendly with a famous European club at home since we were founded in 2006."

21-time Dutch champions PSV currently sit fifth on the Eredivisie table, nine points off league leaders Ajax.
