Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic is confident their form will improve in the New Year.

Despite being sidelined for the rest of the campaign after rupturing cruciate knee ligaments in Basel, Vidic is sure his team-mates can maintain this Yuletide custom and build momentum with international football now on the backburner until February.

The skipper told Inside United: “Often we’ll play on Wednesday and then Saturday, Wednesday and then Saturday. This helps you get into a rhythm and training during this time is all about recovery and rest. Physically, it’s easier on your body when you’re not travelling for international football.

“If you’ve been away with your country it can sometimes take you two days to adjust when you get back to Manchester. Now, until February, all the players will be together and concentrating only on Manchester United.

“We can work on a lot of different things together and focus ourselves for the end of the season. Traditionally we tend to do well over winter, our form tends to improve. Hopefully we can do the same this year.”
