South Korean football star Park Ji-sung is planning to
play in a charity match in Viet Nam.

Park, who plays for Manchester United, will line up alongside
fellow teammates Patrice Evra and Edwin Van de Sar along with former Juventus
hitman Pavel Nedved and Manchester City’s Carlos Tevez.

The match, which is scheduled for June 15, has received support
from the Viet Nam Football Federation who also said they were making detailed
plans in preparation for the event.

Park’s agent company is looking into a suitable venue for the
game and money raised through ticket sales will be given to the VFF to develop
the nation’s junior football movement.

Park, who played a key role in South Korea’s World Cup 2010
campaign, also introduced his JS Foundation that focuses on charitable
activities in Southeast Asia on Wednesday.

Park said goodbye to the national team in January after winning
his 100th cap in a match against Japan during the Asian Cup.

Park has played in three World Cups, scoring in each
tournament, and is one of the greatest Asian players ever to put on a football
