Vidic: I Am Not Unhappy, Just Injured

Nemanja Vidic's Old Trafford exit is inevitable, according to the British press who drew their conclusions from the fact that 1) Vidic pulled out of the FA Cup tie against Leeds in the last minute and 2) after the 1-0 defeat Fergie said he could tell nothing about why Vidic had missed the game.

However, that does not mean there's a rift between the pair: Vidic insists that everything is fine.

'Everything surprised me a lot,' he told Sportski zurnal. 'Ferguson said that he didn't talk with the club doctor, but he didn't say that he doesn't believe in my injuries and that we are in a fight.

'Everybody in the club knows that I have a marvellous understanding with my coach Ferguson.

'Moreover, I'm not unhappy at Old Trafford. I'm just injured and that is the end of the story.

'I hope that I will be able to play as soon as possible. The doctors told me that I will not be able to play for the next seven or ten days so I don't think that I will play against Birmingham City.'


His agent added that Vidic was not negotiating with any other clubs and that his mood was pretty much 'standard'.

'I have not spoken to him since the last defeat but, as far as I know, there is no problem.'

Storm in a teacup.

Your future's not really looking to clever at the moment is it? http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/david-conn-inside-sport-blog/2010/jan/06/manchester-united-glazers-debt

A very insightful and interesting read, fifth. I'd hate to be a United fan and read that, it'd make me choke on my coffee.

There will be a lot of manure fans carrying bricks in their pants after reading that to be sure. Still, they can always cling to the myth that some lovely sugar-daddy will take over the club and rescue them from their misery, instead of just fleecing them the way the Glazers have done. By the way, how's that Campaign to have Malcolm Glazer knighted for services to football going?

Well, as of last year, The Guardian I believe it was, had this red club valued at 1.495billion. It might have dropped a little since then, but probably not too much. Add 700m in debt to that, and that makes a very tidy 2.2billion. Can't see many people around the World having that kind of money to spend, can you?

Really do not want Vidic to go he is the rock in our defense espicially seeing as we dont know whether Ferdinand's coming our going with his injury. If he goes who do we replace him with? Evans is still developing and frankly other solid CB's cost a fortune.

Oh and thanks to the City fans for telling us what we already know, yes we are in debt, this is hardly new.

OU23 Vidic is arrguably your best defender now that Ferdinand's future is in doubt, and you are right to want to hold onto him. But I suspect he's burnt his bridges with Fergie, and your manager will probably get rid of him even if it's to the detriment of your team. He might be a great manager, but he's a stubborn old fart and it might just work against you in this instance.
