In the case of Jack Butland, the already new goalkeeper of Manchester United has not yet debuted this season in an official match. The Spanish Vicente Guaita is the undisputed starter at the goal of the eagles and coach Patrick Vieira’s alternative for the cup matches has been the Englishman Sam Johnstone. This way, Jack Butland will act as David De Gea’s new competitor along with veteran Tom Heaton. The statement published by the Mancunian team to formalize the signing of their new goalkeeper, who has played 87 Premier League games and has been capped nine times with England, includes Jack Butland’s first statements as a Manchester United player.

“This is an incredible club that I am now proud to represent. I am looking forward to working with an incredible group of goalkeepers, supporting each other every day to create the best training and playing environment for the team. I’ve played against David De Gea and I’ve represented England alongside Tom Heaton; they are first class goalkeepers, and I’m looking forward to the opportunity to compete alongside them and support them as teammates. There is a lot this group can achieve this season and I am excited to play my part in helping everyone achieve these ambitions.”
