International striker may not return to Watford as he chases World Cup spot
South Korea's manager does not expect Chu-Young Park to play for Watford again this season - with the striker currently in Seoul receiving treatment.
Park joined the Hornets on loan from Arsenal on January 31 but has only played for just over an hour during one start and one substitute appearance.
The 28-year-old has been out injured since the beginning of March and reportedly arrived in Seoul for treatment on April 3, suffering with the skin infection Cellulitis.
Park scored in his last outing for South Korea on March 5, when he came off at half-time against Greece, and is trying to regain fitness for the World Cup in Brazil.
"Park is quickly regaining his form. But it will be difficult for him to go back to England for Watford's final match," South Korea manager Hong Myung-bo said on Monday.
"It would be better for Park to comment on whether he will go back to Watford. He will make a decision after discussing the matter with his team."
The striker, who is also referred to as Ju-Young Park by some, had a good goal scoring record at his previous clubs Monaco and FC Seoul before he joined Arsenal in 2011.
But he has failed to break into the Gunners side in the past three years and his career has suffered, making just seven appearances and scoring one goal. He spent last season on loan at Celta Vigo.
