      Park Ji-sung takes a shot on goal during an event celebrating the centennial anniversary of PSV Eindhoven hosted by its owner, Dutch company Philips, in Seoul on Wednesday.

      Park Ji-sung promised to play his heart out for PSV Eindhoven's Korean tour later this week during a press conference at Suwon's World Cup Stadium on Wednesday.

      "I want to deliver solid performances as they will be my last games in club uniform," he said.

      Park, Asia's most decorated player, is on loan to the Dutch team from English side Queen's Park Rangers. He announced his retirement from the sport on May 14, making the upcoming two fixtures the last of his storied career.

      After a friendly match with Suwon Samsung at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Park will play another friendly against Gyeongnam FC at 2 p.m. on Saturday.

      "I won't be able to play the full 90 minutes for either match because there's only one day's rest in between," he said. "I'll probably play 45 minutes for each one."
