Everyone knows that Paul Scholes was one of the most accurate passers to ever grace the Premier League, but his old team-mate Phil Neville has revealed a downside to this skill at training.

The former Manchester United player took part in a Questions and Answers session today and informed viewers that his best mate at old Trafford was Scholes, while Tim Cahill took the accolade at Everton.

Despite a strong friendship, the midfielder took great pride in practicing his accuracy when nature called for Neville, which as he revealed himself, was a regular occurrence.

"I used to drink maybe two or three bottles of water before a training session and when I used to go out onto the training field I always needed to go to the toilet," he said.

"I'd go in the bushes and when I was in the bushes Paul Scholes, who probably has the most accurate pass of all time, used to ping balls at my head all the time."

"It was like dodging bullets at times."
