Nemanja Vidic insists Manchester United go out to entertain - as well as win - whenever they step onto the football pitch.

The former Serbian international missed Saturday's emphatic 4-1 victory over Wolves, his first absence since suffering an anterior cruciate ligament knee injury in Europe that will keep him out for the rest of the season.

United's skipper was in improved spirits after watching the weekend performance though, and is adamant that whilst it isn't always possible, the Red Devils are always looking to keep the fans happy.

“I know it’s unlikely we will play entertaining football every time we go out on the pitch. We should always try, though," he told Inside United magazine.

“Nobody wants to be part of a team that plays boring football. When you come off the pitch you want to be proud of what you’ve done and you want to have entertained the fans.”

Interviewed before suffering the injury against FC Basel in Switzerland last week, Vidic went on to stress that the players always give their best for the fans at United.

Winning trophies is the ultimate goal, particularly under Sir Alex Ferguson, and occasionally United must fight to get the victory.

"We play for the fans – we don’t play for ourselves," he added.

"If we can make the fans happy and, at the same time, win games and win trophies, that’s the perfect scenario.

"Sometimes, though, there will be tough games, games that we have to fight for, games that are a struggle. But when you’re playing for Manchester United you have to strive to entertain and win."
