Man Utd skipper Vidic relishing Stoke test

Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic says they know they face a stiff test against Stoke City.

Stoke's physical qualities is something Vidic relishes facing.

"In English football you have to deal with big, tall strikers and you have to deal with the small, sharp and quick ones," observed the Serbian.

"That is why it is the most competitive league in the world. But I just love to defend.

"Right from when I was young I always liked to defend, to work to stop the other team scoring a goal no matter how they played or who they played for.

"I have played against the big ones and ones with the technique. In all the years I've been here I learned how to stop them all."
