Park Ji-sung has been recalling his first days at Manchester United.

The South Korean joined United from PSV Eindhoven.

“When I joined the first training session I looked around and saw all the players I used to watch on TV,” Park told manutd.com.

“I was like, ‘Can I play with these players?’ It was weird. I was confident in my ability, but it was just strange to be alongside these players. There were moments in training, like making a good pass or scoring a goal, that built my confidence.

“After I signed, even before I signed – when I did the medical test – I had a look around and it was clear this was the biggest club in the world. I remember it being a really proud moment.”

Park Ji-sung admits South Korea’s football fans didn’t first believe the news when he signed for Manchester United.

Park has been recalling his first days at Old Trafford.

He told manutd.com: “It was funny because on the day that I joined the club, the newspaper that broke the news was one that people don’t always trust or believe. Then, when I signed and there were pictures of me and Sir Alex Ferguson, people believed it.

“It was a big shock, I think. My reputation has increased not just in Korea, but across the continent. My reputation was already big in my country because of the World Cup in 2002, but after coming here the coverage has grown. I don’t feel too much pressure, though. All I can do is my best. Manchester is one of a few clubs, along with Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus and AC Milan, that most people know about back home., People who don’t like football so much might not have known where Manchester was or who played for the team, but that’s changed.”
