Vidic welcomes warm Rooney applause from Man Utd fans

Manchester United's Nemanja Vidic was happy to see and hear the clubs supporters back Wayne Rooney on Monday night.

The Red Devils forward remains a target for Chelsea with reports that he would prefer a move to Southwest London than to remain at Old Trafford.

Nevertheless, Rooney received a very warm reception from United fans during Monday night's 0-0 draw with the Blues which was not at all a surprise to captain Vidic.

"The supporters have always supported the players, Wayne is no different," he said.

"He has been supported throughout the years and I don't think there was a question he would have been supported against Chelsea.

"He has scored so many goals and won so many trophies, I expected him to receive a good reception."
