Man Utd boss Ferguson: Vidic red harsh but understandable

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson accepted Nemanja Vidic's dismissal during their 2-0 Champions League win at Otelul Galati.

On his return from a calf injury which has kept him out for two months, Vidic saw red during the second-half for a challenge on Gabriel Giurgiu.

"I've looked at it and his foot is certainly high," said Ferguson.

"I can understand the referee's interpretation of the incident.

"Maybe it's a bit different in Germany, but I thought it was a little harsh. It was certainly a booking."

The decision annoyed midfielder Michael Carrick, who claimed: "It was a dubious sending-off at best really and we're disappointed with that."
