Walsall Football Club loanee Andy Butler has today spoken to the press about his somewhat surprising return to the club, and has discussed various aspects of his initial move, and the decision to return to Banks's Stadium.

Speaking to the South Yorkshire Times, Andy said; “It’s been tough because I've gone from playing every week here to playing once. But that’s football.

“I have been in the game long enough to know it is just a game of opinions. If the gaffer thinks there is someone else better than you that is all that matters.

“I work hard in training and you try and change his mind but obviously if the lads are performing on the pitch, which they have started to do in the last few games, you can’t drop them. It’s up to him to pick the team.”

Andy also spoke to the Express & Star, and discussed the suggestion that his initial move to Sheffield United was purely a financial one, he said; “I left and hopefully they can forgive me for leaving.

“It wasn't purely money - that is not an issue. I know a lot has been made about my wages but it is not that much difference, it was purely the fact I wanted to see my kids and pick them up from school, I have been relying on my Dad to pick them up.

“As things have worked out, I am relying on my Dad to pick the kids up again. But as long as I have a smile on my face, my Dad is happy to do that.

“It has been difficult not playing. It has impacted on my family a little bit because I have been depressed and they have borne the brunt of it.

“As long as I am playing and smiling, they don’t mind.”
