He suffered a broken left leg, which needed metal rods inserted following an operation, and severe bruising.

Butt appeared at Blackburn Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday where he admitted causing serious injury by careless driving.

Today Butt was seen for the first time since his court appearance. 

The 49-year-old looked glum as he sat on a park bench wearing jeans, a white tshirt and white trainers.

He donned sunglasses as he took phonecalls and sipped on a bottle of lemonade. 

The former England star was handed am interim driving ban following the October 2022 crash.

He could face up to two years in jail or an unlimited fine when he is sentenced on a date to be set.

The court heard Butt, who was picking up at his son at the time, suffered a “momentary lapse of concentration”.

Prosecutor Graeme Tindall said: “What appears to have happened is a number of vehicles pass what appears to look like a HGV.

“Mr Butt having let the HGV come past, pulls out and this is when Mr Fielden is coming past on the motorcycle.”

The court was told Mr Fielden was left with no memory of the crash other than waking up in hospital “in immense pain”.

Butt remained at the scene and has since written an apology to the rider.

Mr Fielden chose not to share a victim impact statement and said previously he does not “any ill feeling to the other party”.

John Dye, defending the ex-footballer, said: “The loss of his licence is going to be extremely inconvenient to him and his family but that is the inevitable consequence of this case.”

Butt was a instrumental part of Alex Ferguson’s youth team – rising through the ranks with David Beckham, Ryan Giggs and the Nevilles.

The midfielder began his professional career stepping in for Roy Keane as a sub before he landing a full-time spot when Paul Ince left in 1995.

Along with the rest of the Class of ’92, Butt helped Utd win countless trophies as the club became a dominant force.

This included the Champions League Final in 1999, where the Red Devils made history by winning the treble.

By the time he left in 2004, the footballer had helped Utd win six Premier League titles, three FA Cups and a Champions League trophy.

Butt later had spells at Newcastle and Birmingham City before moving into management in 2016 for Utd’s U23 team.

In 2014, he bought Salford City along with Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, and Gary and Phil Neville.
