Former Manchester United star, Park Ji-sung, has opened up about his special relationship with former teammate Patrice Evra.
In an interview with NBC Sports, the 41-year-old spoke fondly of how his friendship with Evra began, insisting that the former France international is his best friend and one of the best things that happened to him at Old Trafford.
The South Korean spent six years at Man United, making 204 appearances, scoring 28 goals, and contributing 30 assists for the Red Devils.
“When I look back, it was quite strange. It was just one day after training and we were playing a video game. I won the first game and he [Evra] was quite angry at that, so he wanted me to play again, that started our relationship,” Park said.
He added, “He became one of my best friends, the kind of friend that had a different character. He was a more outgoing person, he had that sense of humour. I am a quiet, very quiet person, but we always had happy times when we got together.
“He came over to South Korea sometimes and then we met at other places. We always joked on the phone, it is really good to have a best friend in a different culture. One of the great things about joining Man United is that I made a best friend.”
