Jack Butland at Old Trafford. As soon as the official announcement was made, the remarks made six years ago drew attention.
Manchester United said on the club website on the 6th (Korean time), “With pleasure, we announce the signing of Bertland on loan from Crystal Palace. The period is until the end of the 2022-23 season. He played 87 English Premier League (EPL) games, He holds the record for England national team appearances in nine matches.”
Man Utd director John Matou, who signed the contract, said: “Bertland is a fantastic goalkeeper with great experience. He is truly amazing physically and mentally. He will be a great addition to a fantastic group of goalkeepers. Butland has De Gea, Heaton and the young goalkeeper I will create a strong back door with him. I look forward to the day I can be with him.” 스포츠토토
“Man United is an amazing club and I’m proud to play here. I’m really looking forward to working with an incredible group of goalkeepers. I played with David de Gea and I played for the national team with Tom Heaton,” Bertland said. There are many things I can do. I will do my part and help everyone.”
With this, Manchester United have a goalkeeper in their arms to fill the vacancy of Martin Dubravka, who returned from loan to Newcastle United. Butland has been through Birmingham, Stoke City, Palace, etc., and as he has also played an active part in the England national team, he is expected to become a resource like Altoran.
After the official announcement, the remarks left in the past were re-examined. The British ‘Sports Bible’ reported that “Bertland had previously claimed that he would not move to Manchester United to become a reserve resource. He tweeted, ‘I will never be No. 2’.”
The situation became embarrassing because of the Twitter he left six years ago. Manager Eric ten Haag explained the background of the signing, saying, “I am very happy with De Gea. He is obviously our number 1 goalkeeper. But anything can happen to him and we have to be prepared.” Butland will play for Manchester United for the rest of the season, playing the ‘No.2’ or ‘No.3’ role he rejected himself.
