Alexander Buttner claims his “adventure with Manchester United was not a failure” and has pointed to the fact that he has more Premier League titles than Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard.

Buttner spent just two years at United after joining the club in 2012, making just 28 appearances.

The left-back is often remember as one of the most unworthy recipients of a Premier League winner’s medal however, after he played five games in the 2012/13 league campaign.

But the 27-year-old, who recently joined Eredivisie club Vitesse, insists his time was a success, and that even Gerrard cannot match his achievements.

“My adventure with Manchester United was not a failure,” Buttner told Algemeen Dagblad.

“Who can say that they have won the Premier League title? I can say that.

“Even Steven Gerrard hasn’t managed it.

“I played more games for United than I ever dreamed of.

“I’ve become a much better football player, I played in the quarter-finals of the Champions League against Bayern Munich and Arjen Robben.”
