Lee Chung-yong calls upon Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger to play fellow South Korean Park Chu-young on a regular basis.

Lee Chung-yong has claimed that Arsenal must play fellow South Korean international Park Chu-young on a regular basis to utilise his full potential.

Bolton Wanderers winger Chung-yong, who is currently recovering from a broken leg, knows all about adapting to life in the Premier League.

The 23-year-old joined the Trotters and 2009 and ended up winning the club's Player of the Year award at the conclusion of his first season in England.

Chung-yong believes that he benefited from play a large amount of matches and has called on Gunners manager Arsene Wenger to do the same with his compatriot.

"It was hard at first to play in the Premier League but I was lucky to play every single match and that helped me adapt and get used to my new teammates," Lee told Bolton News.

"Chu-young will need to do the same if he is to settle quickly."

Chu-young, 26, joined Arsenal last month from AS Monaco.
