Man Utd accept Vidic suspension

Manchester United have accepted defender Nemanja Vidic’s two game ban in the Champions League, The Telegraph reports.

Vidic was sent off against Otelul Galati last month and received an automatic one match suspension as a punishment. However, UEFA contacted United after the game to inform that the Serbian captain would be banned for two games. With fellow defender Chris Smalling sidelined with a broken foot, Vidic’s absence could prove costly if United suffer any injury worries against Swansea City this weekend.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson called the decision as very harsh initially, but the club will not contest the decision when UEFA’s disciplinary panel meet on Thursday in Nyon.
