Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic has cleared up rumours that suggested that he and Sir Alex Ferguson had a bust up on Sunday prior to the Leeds game but it has been revealed that he suffered a nerve injury prior to the game, ruling him out.
“Everyone in the club knows I have a marvellous understanding with Ferguson. He said he didn’t talk with the club doctor but he didn’t say 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 I will be able to play as soon as possible. The doctors said I will not be able to play for the next seven or 10 days so I don’t think I will play against Birmingham on Saturday but I should be OK after that.”
The incident only added fuel to claims that the Serbian defender would be moving to Spain in the summer with Real Madrid the likely destination, so his decision to come out and clear up this mess may finally halt some of these rumours.
[Is there any substance to this and should this rumour Fly or Die?]
