Vidic out for months, says agent

Published Add your comment

A wretched 24 hours for Manchester United appears to have got even worse after Nemanja Vidic's agent claimed the defender ruptured cruciate knee ligaments in Basle on Wednesday night.

Vidic immediately signalled he was in trouble after falling awkwardly following a tangle of legs with Marco Streller during the first-half of the shock 2-1 defeat. Sir Alex Ferguson said after the game his captain had suffered ligament damage, but hoped the damage was not too serious.

However, speaking to the Italian website, Vidic's agent Silvano Martina delivered some devastating news. "Unfortunately he has suffered a ruptured cruciate ligament," said Martina.
