Alex Büttner should be “very happy” with his first season at Manchester United, according to former Red Devils keeper Raimond van der Gouw.

The Dutch left-back scored two goals in five Premier League appearances as the 24-year-old deputised for veteran defender Patrice Evra throughout the
title-winning campaign.

Büttner joined the 20-time English champions from Vitesse Arnhem last summer, and the Dutch side’s goalkeeping coach Van der Gouw has been impressed by the full-back’s impact.

“I don’t get to see United as much as I want to because I’m too busy with the job at my club in Holland,” Van der Gouw told United’s website. “But I think Alex can be pleased.

“He did really well. I think he wants to play a few more minutes of course but it depends on how it goes for next season.

“I read an article from him and he said he had a chat with Patrice Evra and [he’d said] that Alex should be very happy with the minutes he’s played now as it was a massive step from where he was coming from.”

Büttner scored 10 goals in 119 appearances for Vitesse before leaving the Eredivisie side to move to Old Trafford in August.
