Man Utd boss Ferguson: Vidic back for Sunderland

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is ready for Nemanja Vidic to play against Sunderland.

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is ready for Nemanja Vidic to play against Sunderland.

Ferguson believes Vidic will be ready to put an injury-blighted 16 months behind him — and plug the league leaders’ leaky defence.

The United chief said: “It would have been crazy to play him against City but against Sunderland... definitely.

“It’s a big bonus to have him back. He is a real competitor with that uncompromising way of his. He likes defending — that’s what it is.”
