Buttner is behind Patrice Evra in the pecking order and isn't complaining.
"I know Patrice is here and he plays so many games. I know that and I know I am for the future. It is okay. If I play 12 or 13 games this season then I'll be happy," he told manutd.com.
On his Holland hopes, Buttner added: "Yes, I hope it's close. I have to be patient. When I play here, I can play there. I have patience when I say that I'm for the future. Of course they are following me now and hopefully that will be okay."
