Button praise for Romain

14 December 2010 11:00
David Button has thanked his Plymouth Argyle goalkeeping rival Romain Larrieu for his support. Button is on a season-long loan from Premier League club Tottenham, which has been disrupted by a couple of injuries. On both occasions, Larrieu has deputised for Button, only to make way for the 21-year-old on his return to fitness. "Hopefully, I will stay fit now and can get a good run in the team," Button told The Herald. "I know Romain was disappointed to lose his place on Saturday, but he has been fantastic towards me. He has actually been an inspiration. "I know he's always there for me. He wants his place back as much as I want to keep mine, and I'm sure it will be a good fight between us for the rest of the season. "I couldn't speak more highly of Romain and how he has been towards me. I'm not sure everybody would have been like that. "He has really got the best interests of Plymouth Argyle at heart."
