Nemanja Vidic: Returning to action

Nemanja Vidic has admitted it will take at least two months before he is back to his best.

The Manchester United skipper completed the second game of his comeback from knee surgery in Saturday's 2-0 win over West Brom at Old Trafford.

He certainly made his presence felt too, guiding United's defence to only their fourth clean sheet in the Premier League this season, which ensured they head into 2013 seven points clear of Manchester City.

However, Vidic is refusing to accept his comeback is complete.

After virtually 16 months on the sidelines, including rupturing his cruciate during the devastating defeat to Basle last December, the 31-year-old knows there is plenty of work ahead.

"The doctor is managing the games I am playing at the moment," he told MUTV.

"Over the first two or three months I have to really look at that because sometimes I might have a reaction.

"This is a process I have to go through.

"I am glad I have managed to play after three months. It is nice to be on the pitch and playing games.

"Hopefully I can play more often so I can build my form and play better."

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...
