Alexander Buttner delighted with his debut goal

Alexander Buttner has described the “incredible feeling” of scoring at Old Trafford on Saturday against Wigan Athletic.

Buttner himself said:

“Rene Meulensteen told me on Friday that I would play and must do my thing. Just before the kick off Mr Ferguson told me to enjoy it and that I could do it”

“I entered the field with very heavy legs. The atmosphere was beautiful, but 80,000 people very close to the pitch also gave me some tension. I have never had something like that before.”

“I received the ball from Ryan Giggs and fired at goal. I think it also was a goal if Javier Hernandez didn’t touch it”

Buttner on scoring on his debut:

“I got the ball, went past three defenders and fired hard on goal, If it was a mistake by the goalkeeper? That doesn’t matter. Out of nothing 80,000 people were cheering for me. It was an incredible feeling. ”

“After the match Mr Ferguson told me he was proud. I was honoured as man of the match and got a magnum bottle of champagne.”

“Before the match Robin predicted my goal and assist.”
