Manchester United's South Korean star Park Ji-sung is hopeful he has put his injury nightmare behind him.

Park damaged his cruciate ligament last year and then suffered an ankle problem which ruled him out of the Olympics.

But the 26-year-old is now back at full fitness and having scored at Chelsea last month is hopeful he is ready for a big season.

"I am fit and I feel okay," he said.

"I could not start the season, which was quite disappointing because no-one

wants to miss games through injury.

"But I have played three matches now and I am 100 per cent, so hopefully I won't suffer any more [injuries] this season."

Park was sorry to see Paul Scholes ruled out until Christmas with a knee injury.

"It is a shame Paul will be out," said Park.

"He brings a lot of experience to the team and that helps everyone else. He is an important player but we have to try and manage without him."
