Nemanja Vidic stated that United must move on and concentrate on coping without the injured Wayne Rooney.

The striker is set to be out for two months but it’s no good lamenting it, or the slow start made against Reading, says the Serb who is expected to play a key part in United’s campaign again.

‘We have dropped two points already and we are disappointed with that,’ he said.

‘But we cannot afford to think about it too much. It is a long season, so all we can do is assess where we made the mistakes and try to improve.

‘Portsmouth are always a difficult team to play against anyway, so we cannot afford to go into the match still thinking about what happened against Reading.’


I daresay our achievements will depend on our attacking capabilities – if we can score goals as we did last season, Vidic and co. will do their job sufficiently to win trophies.
