Vidic plays down rift rumours
EMANJA Vidic insists he has a "marvellous understanding" with 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. 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 said. "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."
