Vidic To Return For Arsenal Clash?
I, personally, do not really trust the Daily Mail. I view it with utmost suspicion when they claim that an insider source revealed something that was kept under cover until that.
However, being the foolishly optimistic fan I am, I could not help but being lifted by what I read in the aforementioned paper's online edition. There are some really soothing words in their report about Ferdinand's injury.
Whilst the club revealed only that he has not broken his foot but nothing regarding the length of his absence, the Mail claimed that Rio has a good chance of featuring against Arsenal. I suspected this: after all, if there's no metatarsal fracture then it's only a bit of bruising which should really go away until Sunday.
But I was shocked to see that Vidic whose return was put to April 19 by the most optimistic forecasts, could be back. The newspaper claims that the big Serbian is 'making sufficient progress to be under consideration too.'
All right, I told myself. It's only a newspaper report. No need to get your hopes high. And I managed not to. But if there's even a tiny piece of truth in this news then Vidic will be back for our visit to Ewood Park - and we will need him there even more than we would need him against Arsenal.
