Alexander Buttner Burns Steven Gerrard While Defending His Manchester United Spell

Alexander Buttner Burns Steven Gerrard While Defending His Manchester United Spell

Alexander Buttner burned Steven Gerrard while defending his time playing at Manchester United.

The Dutch defender just yesterday signed with Vitesse in his homeland after failing to make an impact with Dynamo Moscow in Russia.

And while speaking to the press about his move, he looked back on his time at Old Trafford – hitting back at anyone who considers his two-year spell there a failure.

Buttner played just 28 times for United, but was popular among supporters and even managed to be part of a Premier League-winning team in 2013.

It’s that title victory that Buttner referred to when he fired some abuse Gerrard’s way while defending his time in England.

He said, per telesport.nl: “I searched for it, I have played 30 games for United.

“Who can say they became PL champions? I can. Even Steven Gerrard can’t say that. I became a better footballer, played in the CL quarter final against Robben’s Bayern Munich. No one will ever take that away from me.”

Gerrard might need a bandage for that burn.

Buttner also told how the number 28 is special to him after his time at Manchester United.

As he explains, number 28 was his debut shirt and he went on to play 28 times competitively for them – so he’s now got a tattoo of the number 28 on his wrist.

Buttner added: “I debuted in number 28 at United, scored and assisted. Since then I kept number 28, I even have it tattooed on my wrist.”

Now for the calls from Manchester United fans for Jose Mourinho to bring Buttner back to the club if he’s going to be saying things publicly like this.
