Bayern bring in keeper Butt

04 June 2008 04:53
Veteran goalkeeper Hans-Jorg Butt has completed his free transfer from Benfica to Bayern Munich. The 34-year-old former Hamburg and Bayer Leverkusen shot-stopper moved to Lisbon last summer but spent most of the 2007-08 season on the substitute's bench as Quim maintained his position as Benfica's first-choice keeper. Butt has signed a two-year deal with the Bundesliga champions after having his Benfica contract terminated by mutual consent. "We want Hans-Jorg Butt to support the development of our young goalkeeper Michael Rensing, and he's looking forward to this task at Bayern Munich," said Bayern's chairman, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.
