Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has welcomed back skipper Nemanja Vidic for their clash at Otelul Galati.

Vidic has been sidelined with a calf injury since the opening day win at West Brom but is ready to face the Romanian outfit. Fellow centre-back Rio Ferdinand, who did not fly with the team on Monday morning, is rested.

"Rio played very well on Saturday but we have Vidic with us here and I felt it was a good opportunity to give Rio a break. Playing three games in seven days is a lot to ask."
