Man Utd sweat on Vidic knee scan

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is waiting on scans today for defender Nemanja Vidic after he was forced off with a knee injury during last night's victory at Roma.

The defender twisted his knee 34 minutes into a victory that means United are all but assured of qualifying for the Champions League semi-finals. The Serbian international centre-half left Roma's stadium on crutches amid concerns it might be ligament damage.

"We hope it's not serious," said Ferguson. "We hope it's a nerve injury but we can't be sure right now. He will have a scan in the morning and we will know for sure after that. I pray and hope it's not serious because he's a vital part of our team."
