Vidic lay-off continues

Published Add your comment

Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed Manchester United skipper Nemanja Vidic will miss the club's pre-season tour.

United are due to release details of their summer plans soon, having so far only confirmed a friendly in Norway on August 5. However, it is thought the Old Trafford outfit will head to both South Africa and China on their two-week build-up to the new campaign, with another match needing to be slotted in should they miss out on the Community Shield.

But Vidic will not be available for the first part, having ruptured cruciate ligaments in the Champions League defeat to Basle in December. "Vida won't be ready for going on the tour but hopefully he'll be ready for the start of the season," Ferguson told the club's official website.
