Rio claims were nonsense, insists Vidic

Nemanja Vidic has described claims earlier this season that central defensive partner Rio Ferdinand was finished as a top-flight force as "nonsense".

With a troublesome back problem restricting appearances for the previous three seasons, his England place taken away by Fabio Capello and a renewed threat at Manchester United following the arrival of Phil Jones, it was thought this season could be 33-year-old Ferdinand's last at Old Trafford.

However, Vidic is confident those assessments will prove to be incorrect, and said: "He is a very important player, not just this year but over the past years and he has done very well over the last few months."
