Manchester United captain pleased with squad

Published Add your comment

Nemanja Vidic has expressed his satisfaction with the current Manchester United squad, on the eve of the new Premier League season.

The Red Devils captain will be hoping to lead his team to the defence of their crown, under the guidance of David Moyes, who took over from Sir Alex Ferguson this summer.

The former Everton boss has come under scrutiny for his inability to land any marquee signings so far. However, his skipper is calm, and insists that United have enough depth to be competitive yet again. 

Speaking to Sky Sports News, the defender exclaimed: "We have a good team, we have a big squad - we are the champions.

"We have a lot of young players in the team and over the last two years they have improved a lot, which is important for the team and the club.

"I believe we are strong enough to compete for all trophies - one or two more signings would be good for the team but things are good."

The Serbian arrived in Manchester in 2006, and has won five Premier League winner's medals in that time.

Under a new regime it is going to be difficult for the success of Fergie to be emulated. But, as Vidic also explained, one or two arrivals before deadline day would really bolster the side.

One of those heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford is Cesc Fabregas, who left England for Barcelona two years ago.

"Cesc (Fabregas) is a good player but it's not up to me to say who we need or not - any player who comes here will be accepted, just as I was when I came here," added the 31-year-old.

"But it's not something we think of much - we just try to focus on our game and to help the manager achieve what we really want. That's our aim."

Manchester United get their league campaign underway against Swansea at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday evening.
