Man Utd captain Vidic: AC Milan's Thiago Silva best defender in world

Manchester United skipper Nemanja Vidic regards AC Milan defender Thiago Silva as the best in world.

Many say the Serb is the world's No1.

But he told manutd.com: "There are a few of them doing well. I would say Thiago Silva from Milan. He's still young and has the potential to grow. He had a good season last year and if you look in England this year at the defenders, all the teams have had a few problems at the back with injuries. Vincent Kompany's had a good year but he has had a few injuries."
