Alexander Buttner has explained why there was footage of Shinji Kagawa singing “Gangham Style” over the microphone at Rio Ferdinand’s Rosso restaurant.

“At United, it is usual that you sing a song or hold a speech when you’re new,” he said. “I had a little talk about my first positive experiences at the club, but for my buddy Kagawa, it was all a bit more difficult. He barely speaks English, that’s why he stood out in the middle of Rio Ferdinand’s restaurant while the whole squad was watching him. He then screamed ‘I don’t speak English’, put on the music and started dancing Gangnam Style alone. It was legendary, everybody was on the floor laughing.”
