Manchester United skipper Nemanja Vidic says they had no problem with the challenges coming from Manchester City's players during the Community Shield.

Manchester United skipper Nemanja Vidic says they had no problem with the challenges coming from Manchester City's players during the Community Shield.

Nominally a 'friendly', an all-Manchester affair ensured Sunday's game was anything but, with City lucky to finish the game with 11 men.

United refused to take a backward step either and Vidic said: "I know it's the Community Shield. Maybe it's not that important a trophy.

"But, still, it's a derby game and we wanted to win this game. City, I think is the same. They showed it with the challenges they did in the first half.

"Overall, I think it was a good game and the fans could enjoy it."
