Man Utd skipper Vidic in awe of Ferdinand fouls record

Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic admits he's in awe of Rio Ferdinand's fouls record.

Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic admits he's in awe of Rio Ferdinand's fouls record.

Although the England captain conceded a penalty in Saturday's win over West Brom, his trip of Jerome Thomas turned out to be Ferdinand's first foul since March.

"His first foul for three months, and it was a penalty. He should be disappointed," smiled the United skipper.

"Seriously, that is a great run. He is so good at reading the game. He does not commit himself when he doesn't need to, which for a defender, is very important.

"He is such a good footballer and is playing really well just now."
