Gibson warns Man Utd stars

Gibson believes the Manchester United youngsters could make a big impact in the Premier League this season for the club.

The 21-year-old, who is currently on international duty for the Republic of Ireland, has impressed both United boss Sir Alex Ferguson and Giovanni Trapattoni in recent weeks.

“The hype is always on Arsenal’s young players, but we showed in the win over Stoke that we have a lot of good young players,” Gibson told

“I was delighted to make my Premier League debut, but the most important thing was that we got the three points and that is what we did.

“Sir Alex [Ferguson] has told me that I’m not far off from playing in the first-team on a regular basis, but I’m lacking a bit of experience. I’m not going to get much experience if I’m not playing, but I just have to keep my head down and work hard.

“Hopefully I will keep getting more chances and it is up to me to take them. But the manager has shown faith in the young players at the club by using them in important games and he wouldn’t do that unless he knew they could handle it.

“The young players at the club could play a big role this year as we provide competition for places and that makes every player work an extra bit harder.”
