United youngster breaks toe

Published Add your comment

Manchester United midfielder Darron Gibson is facing a spell on the sidelines after fracturing a toe in a reserve-team match with Sporting Lisbon.

Gibson, who made his senior debut for the Republic of Ireland in Slovakia last week, suffered the injury during a 5-2 defeat in a match that was specially arranged to pit United´s youngsters against their Portuguese counterparts.

Although there has been no official confirmation of a precise recovery time for the 19-year-old, who was expected to make his first senior appearance for Sir Alex Ferguson´s side in next Wednesday´s Carling Cup clash with Coventry, early estimates are that Gibson will be out for ´a few weeks´.
