Man Utd skipper Vidic loves reviewing game stats

Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic admits he's a student of the stats derived from each game.

Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic admits he's a student of the stats derived from each game.

Vidic is in a pretty strong position given recent statistics showed he has the highest win percentage of any United player who has made more than 60 appearances for the Old Trafford outfit.

That figure is creeping towards 72% following Saturday's victory at Sunderland, and it is clear Vidic soaks up such facts with relish.

"Now we have the opportunity to see statistics with the analyst after every game," he said.

"You can see how many tackles or headers you have won. You can look at certain things and see where you can improve. Even the passing rate, you can see the percentage you have got right.

"But it is not just the stats, it is the clips as well. I love to watch them. Not every player looks but you have the chance to - and I do."
