Vidic welcomes warm Rooney applause from Man Utd fans
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."
