Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic has no problems with England's busy festive programme.

Vidic admits the Premier League's traditional Christmas programme was a culture shock when he first arrived at United from Spartak Moscow for £7.2million in 2006. But not any more.

"Other leagues tend to stop," said the Serbia defender.

"It not only helps physically but mentally as well. Obviously, in the first full year I was at the club I found it hard to adapt because the season was so long.

"But now, it is not a problem. I have been here for three full seasons now so I know what to expect. I am used to it and I can cope."
