Paul Scholes reveals Park Ji-sung made him hate training

Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has revealed former teammate Park Ji-sung man-marking scheme on him during training gave him nightmares.

Park joined United for a fee of just £4million from PSV Eindhoven in 2005 and would go on to become one of Sir Alex Ferguson’s most trusted squad members, spending seven trophy-laden years at Old Trafford.

Park’s discipline and industry meant he became an invaluable player for the club in big games, and Scholes recalled how he dreaded coming up against the midfielder during a discussion with Wes Brown for MUTV’s ‘Group Chat’ series.

Scholes explained: “I had great players in front of me to watch and learn off… you think of people like Roy Keane in possession who never gave the ball away, later on when [Juan Sebastian] Veron came, great one-twos and all that type of play and I do remember you trying to man-mark me, but you weren’t the only one, Wes!

“Do you know who the worst one was? Park Ji-sung. He was a nightmare! He was unbelievable.

“Do you remember when he did it against [Andrea] Pirlo? Ah, he was unreal! He had energy all day and discipline. The discipline was unreal.”

The legendary ex-United midfielder added: “I remember he used to go from the boxes and then over to the possession and as soon as the boxes were finished he just used to come up to me, look at me and not say a word, stand right next to me… ‘Oh Jesus, here we go!’

“’Come on, ginge!’ – Just say something to me, have a laugh with me! But he was unbelievable at it.

He just used come and stare right into my face, stare into my eyes. “You’re not getting a kick today”!

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has issued an emotional apology top fans after his side’s display in their humiliating loss to Tottenham.

The Red Devils were humbled as former manager Jose Mourinho’s side cruised to a 6-1 win at Old Trafford.

Bruno Fernandes scored a penalty after one minute but defensive errors saw Tanguy Ndombele and Son Heung-Min secure the lead by 10 minutes.

After a red card for Anthony Martial, Harry Kane slotted into an open net while Son grabbed a second before half time.

Lesson to learn from today’s game

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was the victim of a footballing massacre in Manchester after suffering his darkest hour at Old Trafford.

Solskjaer and his spineless United flops were left with faces as red as their shirts following their biggest hammering since 2011.

The fact it was Tottenham and former boss Jose Mourinho who delivered it just rubbed more salt into United’s gaping wounds – ones that could take a long, long time to heal.

United had been reduced to 10 men before half time, but this had little bearing on the eventual outcome.

The day had started with the news Edinson Cavani had jetted into Manchester to undergo a medical ahead of a free transfer to United.

part of the medical should have included him having his head examined – because the Uruguayan striker must be mad to even contemplate joining a team that now concedes goals for fun due to its defence being nowhere near the standards expected or required at this level.

Dembele has since fallen down the pecking order at the Camp Nou, and this, coupled with reports he has spoken to Paul Pogba about a move to Man United, suggest he’s had a change of heart.
