NICKY BUTT (413 words)
Nicky Butt signed for Manchester United as a trainee in July 1991 after playing for Oldham and Greater Manchester Schoolboys.
Butt's hard tackling style has made him primarily a defensive midfielder.His role is of a classic fetcher and carrier, covering every blade of grass but he also boasts clever passing skills and can make timely runs into the box.
