Man Utd boss Ferguson admits Vidic, Ferdinand cannot play together

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson admits Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand may struggle to play together again.

Vidic, 31, was omitted from Fergie's line-up for the Champions League draw against Real Madrid on Wednesday after playing a full 90 minutes the previous Sunday against Everton.

And boss Fergie revealed: "I had my doubts about whether I was doing the right thing or not because he was fantastic against Everton, but I stuck by what we've been doing with him.

"Three days to my mind was a risk.

"It would have been the same for Ferdinand.

"If he had played on the Sunday I would have had my doubts whether to play him on Wednesday."
