Patrice Evra is enjoying his celebrity status in the far East which has come with him being best mates with Ji-Sung Park, the “Korean David Beckham”.

Evra also concedes he didn’t like seeing his other best mate, Carlos Tevez, wearing City’s blue shirt.

“Because I am a close friend of Ji there has been this reaction,” said Evra. “This is what happens when you play for United. You go to every part of the world and everybody loves you. I am still good friends with Carlos but it was painful when I saw him with the City shirt on. He was upset by the booing but he understands.”
