Darron Gibson says that he didn't get enough opportunities at Manchester United, which forced him to make the move to Everton.

Everton midfielder Darron Gibson believes that he never got the chance to prove his worth at Manchester United and insists that he was not a 'failure' at Old Trafford.

The 24-year-old left the Red Devils for the blue half of Merseyside in the January transfer window and the playmaker believes that he made the right choice.

"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," said Gibson.

"That meant I had to move. Some people say I failed at United and towards the end, I wasn't playing my best. I've come here to start showing people how good a player I am. I wouldn't say I failed at United, I'd say I never got the chance I wanted."

Gibson will come up against his former club when Everton go head to head with the Premier League champions on Sunday.
