Ferguson appeared exasperated by Vidic's late withdrawal when asked about the situation following the game.

Vidic said: 'Everything surprised me a lot. 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 10 days so I don't think that I will play against Birmingham City."
