Nemanja Vidic’s Old Trafford exit is inevitable, according to the British press who drew their conclusions from the fact that 1) Vidic pulled out of the FA Cup tie against Leeds in the last minute and 2) after the 1-0 defeat Fergie said he could tell nothing about why Vidic had missed the game.

However, that does not mean there’s a rift between the pair: Vidic insists that everything is fine.

‘Everything surprised me a lot,’ he told Sportski zurnal. ‘Ferguson said that he didn’t talk with the club doctor, but he didn’t say that he doesn’t believe in my injuries and that we are in a fight.

‘Everybody in the club knows that I have a marvellous understanding with my coach Ferguson.

‘Moreover, I’m not unhappy at Old Trafford. I’m just injured and that is the end of the story.

‘I hope that I will be able to play as soon as possible. The doctors told me that I will not be able to play for the next seven or ten days so I don’t think that I will play against Birmingham City.’


His agent added that Vidic was not negotiating with any other clubs and that his mood was pretty much ‘standard’.

‘I have not spoken to him since the last defeat but, as far as I know, there is no problem.’

Storm in a teacup.
