Buttner proud of first season at Man Utd

Alexander Buttner was proud of his first season at Manchester United.

Former United manager Sir Alex Ferguson made sure the Dutch fullback qualified for a Premier League winner's medal such was the impression he made.

He told "I think my first season went really well. In total, I appeared 13 times so I think I'm part of the team now. For the first couple of months, I had to improve and it was difficult to be away from my family and friends. Now, I've started to enjoy it here and I think my first season was fantastic.

"It took time to settle in because I didn't come from a very big club. It was only a small club in Holland so, for me, to go from Vitesse Arnhem to Manchester United was a big step. For the first couple of months I had to settle in and now it's starting to feel good. I feel at home here. I play good football and train very hard."
