Trapattoni expects Gibson to be Man Utd regular

Republic of Ireland boss Giovanni Trapattoni is backing Darron Gibson to make a big impact for Manchester United this season.

Trapattoni is expecting the midfielder to become a mainstay in Sir Alex Ferguson's team after scoring a splendid free-kick in the match against the MLS All-Stars.

Trap said: "Yes, I think Darron can play for United. Sure, Manchester United is a great team with many international players but he has the hunger and the quality."
