Man Utd boss Ferguson happy with winning Vidic return
The Serbian has made just 14 appearances since August 2011 and Ferguson knows what a vital contribution he could make in the months ahead.
"It will take him a bit of time but that is a start," he said. "He is a warrior and he is our captain.
"He always battles for you and sticks his head on that ball in the penalty area. That is what he is great at."
