Manchester United will be without the services of Park Ji-Sung for a month after the South Korean midfielder suffered a hamstring injury in training on Friday afternoon. The news comes as a big blow, as United is faced with a difficult and congested fixture list during the next month; included are away matches at Chelsea FC and Liverpool FC in the Barclays Premier League, UEFA Champions League matches versus Marseille, and a deep FA Cup run. Depth is an issue for United in regards to their wide players, as only 37 year-old Ryan Giggs, Nani, and the inexperienced Gabriel Obertan are currently available. However, there is a bit of good news to report, as Antonio Valencia has begun training again with the reserves.
