Man Utd fullback Buttner reveals Evra leadership

Manchester United fullback Alex Buttner has revealed the leadership influence of Patrice Evra.

Büttner made only his seventh start this season for United in victory at West Ham United on Saturday.

He told manutd.com: "I don't know if people saw this, but before the game at West Ham, Patrice spoke with me for about five minutes on the pitch. He helped me a lot.

"It's not like he was hoping I wouldn't do well. He helps me every day and I appreciate that. He's been in football for many years and I've only been here for two years. In England the football is difficult and Patrice has helped me a lot."
