Vidic confident Man Utd can handle Rooney absence

Nemanja Vidic insists Manchester United can cope without injured teammate Wayne Rooney.

Rooney is expected to miss 2-4 weeks with an ankle sprain.

"We showed this season, we play as a team," said Vidic. "It is not just about one man.

"Definitely Wayne Rooney has had a great season. He is unbelievable, one of the best in the world.

"But sometimes big players are missing, and others need to be ready."
