Sir Alex Ferguson has reservations over Ferdinand playing two games for England and then returning to play two games in three days for United in the Premier League against Sunderland and then the FA Cup replay with Chelsea.
Despite Ferguson's concerns over Ferdinand's involvement, Vidic believes his central defensive partner deserves his recall for England.
"It's good for Rio," said Vidic. "He deserves the call, he has played well this season and can help the national team.
"He would have two international games, then when he comes back we have two games in three days in the Premier League and FA Cup.
"Can he play all of these games? All I can say is that I hope he does well."
