Ex-Man Utd fullback Buttner barred from Vitesse action over fat levels

Former Manchester United fullback Alexander Buttner isn't getting a game at Vitesse because he's been deemed TOO FAT.

De Telegraaf says after missing January with a hamstring injury and then a one-game suspension, Buttner has not featured for the Eredivise top flight side for the past two months as his body fat is unacceptably high.

De Gelderlander also reports that the club are looking to sell their asset because his fat percentage is more than the 10 to 12 per cent allowed.

Buttner did pop up on the bench as an unused substitute against Roda over the weekend but his return to the field might have to weight until he has laid off the chips.
