Park Has Military Service Delayed

Park Has Military Service Delayed

In news that will no doubt have Gooners weeping with relief, South Korean superstar striker Ju Young Park has had his military service delayed until 2022 by the South Korean government. It was anticipated that Park would need to take respite from conquering the Premier League in 2013 in order to undertake a two year military service, which is compulsory for all South Korean men. As I understand it, Park signed a four year deal with the club covering themselves in case he was given a stay of leave.

South Korea's Military Manpower Administration said on Friday that Park's 10-year residency visa from Monaco means he can put off his service until 2022, meaning Park can continue to woo and delight Gunners fans. In seriousness, I can`t see that this has a huge effect because I would be incredibly surprised if he was still at the club next season in any case. The fact that we can now sell him on as a longer term option for a buying club might mean we get a few more pennies for him when he is inevitably sold this summer. LD.

Strange story coming from Park's camp, that this was granted the day before he signed for Arsenal, and now the club will have to pay extra transfer fee to Monaco. Very strange. I wonder who was in charge of this transfer, from Arsenal's side.
