Alexander Buttner’s agent hits out at Man Utd boss David Moyes
Alexander Buttner’s agent says there is a lack of trust between his client and new Manchester United boss David Moyes.
The former Everton manager’s frantic attempts to bring in a new left-back during the transfer window have left question marks over Buttner’s future.
His agent Alexander Bursac says the Dutchman has been promised a loan move away from Old Trafford this season, with Turkish side Besiktas the favourites to sign him.
Bursac told Voetbal International: “It’s unbelievable that Coentrao was not signed on time. Whether that is an error on the part of Real or United doesn’t matter.
“We have received assurances of a loan. Alex is not necessarily looking for a guarantee of playing time but he does not want to spend the entire season on the bench.
“Under Sir Alex Ferguson, Buttner was the up and coming man.
“He started playing in more games and was trusted in training. That sense of trust is not there now.”
United made two bids for Everton full-back Leighton Baines and failed in a last-ditch attempt to bring Real Madrid’s Fabio Coentrao in on loan.
