Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed that Nemanja Vidic will not be involved in Manchester United's Champions League encounter with Cluj at Old Trafford.

On Friday, United boss Ferguson said there was a chance Vidic could be in the squad following knee surgery in September and the 31-year-old did train at Carrington on Tuesday morning.

However, the game will come too early in his recovery and he will not be considered for Sunday's Manchester derby either.
