The Italian tactician praised the Manchester United player's creativity but insisted that, against Germany, it would be unwise to play him as his inexperience could be exploitedGiovanni Trapattoni has suggested that Manchester United winger Robbie Brady is not experienced enough to be included in the Republic of Ireland squad to take on Germany on October 12.
After breaking the goalscoring record for the Ireland Under-21 team, Brady made his senior debut for the Boys in Green against Oman on September 11, where he was instrumental in the 4-1 victory, marking the occasion with a goal and two assists.
"After the game against Oman I said congratulations to him, and I liked him a lot," Trapattoni said of Brady's debut at Craven Cottage.

However, the Italian tactician was keen to emphasise that, while Brady was a creative player, he needed to rely on more experienced players, such as Glenn Whelan and Keith Andrews.
"He is a creative player, but, against this opponent [Germany], we need players with experience. We have [Glenn] Whelan, [Keith] Andrews, [Keith] Fahey," Trapattoni told reporters.
