Man Utd out of title race, says Vidic

Manchester United can forget about retaining the Premier League, defender Nemanja Vidic has told Sky Sports.

United were beaten 3-1 by Chelsea on Sunday and now sit 14 points adrift of league leaders Arsenal, in seventh place.


A Samuel Eto’o hat-trick did the damage and Vidic believes United need to concentrate on qualifying for the Champions League.


“We are too far behind and we have now to focus on the top three or four,” he said.


“It's not going to be easy, we have to now fight to achieve the Champions League. We have to stay positive and stick together and work hard. With a bit of luck hopefully we can achieve that.”


David Moyes replaced Sir Alex Ferguson at the United helm over the summer but Vidic rejected the suggestion that United’s poor form is a result of the new boss.


“We cannot always speak about managers. The players are tired of speaking about that because the manager is trying to do the best he can. Tactically we did well today,” Vidic added.


Vidic was dismissed late on for a foul on Eden Hazard and will miss United’s next game, the Capital One Cup semi-final second-leg against Sunderland on Wednesday.


The Serbian said he was disappointed with the decision and didn’t feel his challenge deserved a straight red card.


“My feeling is that it was very harsh because I went for the ball. Hazard we know is a sharp player and he just pushed the ball,” he said.


United trail the Black Cats 2-1 from the first-leg, a Vidic header equalising Ryan Giggs’ own goal before Fabio Borini’s penalty put Sunderland ahead.
