Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic is on course to return to the club for the start of next season after undergoing successful knee surgery, BBC
The Serbian international suffered knee ligament damage in United’s 2-1 defeat at Basel in the Champions League earlier this month. Vidic’s loss may be detrimental to United’s success, but they will see the return of the 30 year old next season. Sir Alex Ferguson believes the injury situation is getting better, but the loss of Vidic will affect the Red Devils defence.
Ferguson said: ‘He had surgery on Wednesday and came through fine. They didn’t remove anything at all, everything’s clear, but it’s a cruciate so it’ll be next season’.
Ten United players are currently out of action with injury, including Brazilian midfielder Anderson until February. Ferguson believes Anderson is improving every day and should be back soon. The United boss said: ‘Anderson’s coming on great. He’s showing great progress. He’s trained well. We’re just monitoring him, because he still has a lot of work in the gymnasium, but he’s coming along’.
