Man Utd boss Ferguson admits Vidic out of derby

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson admits Nemanja Vidic is out of tomorrow's derby at Manchester City.

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson admits Nemanja Vidic is out of tomorrow's derby at Manchester City.

Vidic remains a doubt for Monday's clash after the captain sustained a thigh injury during last weekend's 1-0 victory at Sunderland with Jonny Evans also struggling to make Monday's encounter.

"Vida got injured at Sunderland," confirmed Sir Alex. "Early on, he had a clash and had a bit of treatment and then he had a clash with David De Gea near the end of the game. It's not serious, just a nerve in his calf, so he should be maybe back in training over the weekend.

"I've got Rio Ferdinand, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones so I've got the right cover, I think."
