Arsenal's Gibbs over his Man Utd gaffe

Arsenal's England U21 fullback Kieran Gibbs feels he's bounced back from his Champions League gaffe against Manchester United last season.

"It's hard to think at the time and put the blame on anyone else," he said, reflecting on his performance in a 3-1 defeat to United in the semi-finals of the Champions League.

"I felt disappointed after that but I'm trying to forget about that now and this is the tournament I am in.

"I look at the season as a big success for me personally, I've got my experience in and played in some big games that I wanted to play in.

"On the other side, for the team, after what happened in the Champions League I felt disappointed, not for myself but for the team and the people I thought I had let down.

"I received a lot of support after that and that got me through it for the rest of the season. I think it showed a mental strength to come back from that, especially straight after."
