Man Utd fullback Buttner: Ferguson, Meulensteen were pleased with me

Alexander Buttner has revealed his gradual introduction to Manchester United action last season was all pre-planned.

The young Dutch left-back impressed United fans in the rare times he managed to feature.

"With Sir Alex Ferguson and Rene Meulensteen we had a clear path in mind," he said in Voetbal International.

"Last season I played more than previously I thought and they thought I had adjusted well. I have a great feeling for the coming season, I could be more than a stand-in."
