Vidic, Rooney miss Man Utd morning training

Nemanja Vidic and Wayne Rooney were absent from Manchester United training this morning.

Striker Rooney took a knock to his hip before scoring the equaliser, his 18th goal of the season, in the 2-1 Premier League defeat by Chelsea on Saturday.

Centre-half Vidic, who missed the first leg against Barcelona through illness, suffered a facial injury when taking a knee in the face as he battled with Didier Drogba. The Serbian international was stretchered off the Stamford Bridge pitch midway through the first half.

A four-man group comprising Rio Ferdinand, Owen Hargreaves, Michael Carrick and Wes Brown trained away for the rest of the squad at the beginning of the session.
