The BIG debate: Is Darron Gibson Manchester United quality?
There has been a constant worry for Manchester United in terms of the project “Paul Scholes disaster management” – hence, what happens when Scholes retires?
United have one first choice midfielder in Darren Fletcher but they lack a regular partner for him. Options include the likes of Anderson, Michael Carrick or Gibson although papers this week have suggested that Carrick has been told he can go if he wishes in the summer.
Already 23, Gibson has started just 10 Premier League games in the last three seasons in a United shirt. He gained valuable experience at Wolves on loan and for his national side, the Republic of Ireland.
Gibson seized on injuries to United’s midfield and played a few games but has not been able to win a place for any regular period of time when everyone has been fit.
He has brought a powerful shot to the United side but has little more to offer than that. It often appears his shooting is also inconsistent. Unless he can bring something else to his game and some general levels of consistency, surely he is out of the door?
