Gibson hails United's group mentality

11 January 2011 09:30
Darron Gibson is confident Manchester United's bid for glory will never be derailed by disgruntled players venting their frustrations in public. Although Manchester City have made rapid strides under Roberto Mancini this term, and at the very least look like cementing a place in next season's Champions League, their unity has not been helped by a series of negative comments from men not happy with their lot. Yet this does not happen at United, even though Sir Alex Ferguson's rotation policy has been in operation far longer. Gibson was one of those who suffered on Sunday, when he remained on the bench for Sunday's FA Cup tie with Liverpool. But the Republic of Ireland international feels it is part of being at a club where the challenge is to win trophies, rather than merely looking after number one. "The spirit is so good within the squad and everyone is so tight together, no-one wants to upset it," said Gibson. "This is a great club and we have a great manager, who knows what he is doing and how to keep players happy. We have a good group at the minute. Hopefully it will stay like that for a long time."
