Man Utd's Vidic joins Drogba diver calls

Ahead of Wednesday's Champions League final, Vidic declared: "Sometimes he [Drogba] goes in very strong and sometimes he pretends he is weak. He plays with your mind and tries to make the defender think about the next tackle.

"He can pretend he fell down to win a penalty, but referees know that. The Champions League final is a big game and I'm sure the ref will know his job."

However, Vidic did also tell the Sunday Times: "He's a great player and he's a top scorer. It's a hard job to stop him."

The big Serb insisted there was no hard feelings after their clash at Stamford Bridge last month.

Vidic said: "He went for the ball and I don't think he wanted to kick me. It's in the past and I don't think about what happened in the past.

"I don't know if he said sorry. I remember nothing from those first five seconds after it happened, but he didn't need to apologise. When a player doesn't mean to kick me yet it happens, I understand that."
