Gibson: I wasn't a Man Utd flop


Everton midfielder Darron Gibson doesn't think that his Manchester United spell was a flop, despite the fact that the player spent the majority of his time on the United bench.






"I am just enjoying it [at Everton] and I'm in a better mood now, I know that," Gibson said. "It is nice to know you're in with a more-than-likely chance of playing every week, rather than not.





"It's surprised me how well it's gone because I wasn't sure. This was the first club I have moved to - I was at United since I was 15. I wasn't sure what to expect but I'm really enjoying my football. It is a great club.





"As a footballer you want to play and when it came down to it, I wasn't playing as much as I would have liked. That meant I had to move. Some people would say I failed at United and towards the end, I wasn't playing my best.





"So I've come here to start showing people how good a player I am. I wouldn't say I failed I'd say I never got the chance I wanted."
