The new Gunners signing is hoping to make his Premier League bow against Swansea City on Saturday, but he admits recent international commitments have taken it out of himSouth Korea international captain Park Chu-Young admits Tuesday's 1-1 World Cup qualifier draw in Kuwait took its toll on him due to the stifling conditions, but insists he will be ready to make his debut for Arsenal at the weekend.
The new signing scored his ninth goal in 17 matches against Middle East countries; however, Park said after the game that the hot conditions, long travel distances, hostile atmosphere and unfamiliar pitch conditions made it difficult.
“I felt really tired, but I appreciate that other players took control of the game well,” Park told Ilgan Sports.
He added: “The match was a good opportunity for our players to improve.”
Park is now looking forward to linking up with his new team-mates at Arsenal, with a debut against Swansea City a possibility this Saturday.
"I will try to adjust at Arsenal and work hard to play in many games as I can,” he said.
