Man Utd title winner Buttner set to end career in Dutch SECOND division


MANCHESTER UNITED title winner Alexander Buttner is poised to end his career… in the Dutch second division.

The left-back, 33, helped the Red Devils lift their last Premier League crown in 2013.

He also scored in Sir Alex Ferguson‘s final game as Old Trafford boss, a 5-5 draw with West Brom.

Buttner is currently with Eredivisie strugglers RKC Waalwijk, who he joined last year.

But the defender has agreed a three-year deal to join De Graafschap during the summer.

Based in his home town Doetinchem, they are mid-table in the second-tier Eerste Divisie.

Graafschap technical director Peter Bijvelds said: “I won’t deny the fact that Alex will be joining us.

“It could become reality very soon.”

Buttner played for local side VV Doetinchem before joining Ajax‘s famed academy aged eleven.

He moved on to Vitesse Arnhem before United signed him in 2012.


Buttner would go on to make 28 appearances for the Red Devils across two seasons – scoring twice.

The former Holland youth international went on to play for Dynamo Moscow, Anderlecht and New England Revolution.

He also had a second spell with Vitesse.
