Nemanja Vidic refutes rift claims with Manchester United boss Sir Alex

Nemanja Vidic insists he has a 'marvellous understanding' with Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson. Vidic has once again been linked with a big-money move away from Old Trafford in recent days, speculation that was fuelled by his strange withdrawal from Sunday's FA Cup defeat by Leeds moments before kick-off. At the time, Ferguson could not shed any light on what had caused Vidic's absence, which suggested a breakdown in communication between the pair. It has now been established Vidic tweaked a nerve in his leg that was causing him enough discomfort to warrant him standing down from the side and Wes Brown stepping in to take his place. Hunkydory: Vidic says his relationship with Ferguson is fine And, aware his name is once again being mentioned with a move away from United, Vidic is eager to play down reports of a rift with Ferguson. 'Everybody in the club knows that I have a marvellous understanding with my coach Ferguson,' Vidic 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. 'I am not unhappy at Old Trafford. I am just injured. 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 on Saturday but I should be okay after that.' Although it is claimed Vidic's wife Ana is not happy with life in England, the Serbia star has always appeared content and, if there is a problem, it is more likely to be caused by a desire for his salary to match some of the Red Devils' top earners, an argument that would appear pretty solid given his status as one of the Premier League's best defenders and current United player of the year. Ferguson does not appear to have an issue with a player signed for what nowconstitutes a bargain £7million from Spartak Moscow four years ago.  Graham Poll: Forget that rant by Sir Alex...referee Chris Foy got it spot on and here's the evidence to prove itMancini trying to tempt Manchester United old boy Veron to EastlandsMANCHESTER UNITED FC
