Vidic hopes Van Persie can maintain his high standards over the course of the campaign as United chase another Barclays Premier League title and European glory.
"His touch is magnificent and his finishing is top class," Vidic said on MUTV.
"It is movement from the book, touch from the book, goal from the book.
"It is something they can show to kids, how to move and finish in the last third. He was magnificent for us, we just hope he is going to be in the same form in the end."
