Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed that Manchester United skipper Nemanja Vidic will miss the remainder of the season with a knee injury.
Vidic suffered the injury during the first-half of United's Champions League defeat to Basle on Wednesday and his agent said on Thursday the defender had ruptured his cruciate ligament.
"Nemanja is out for the season," confirmed Ferguson on Friday. "It is bad news. He will be a loss."
