Vidic set for swift return for Manchester United after being rested for win at Liverpool
09:34 GMT, 24 September 2012
Nemanja Vidic is likely to return to Manchester United action next Saturday against Tottenham at Old Trafford.
The Serbian centre-back missed Sunday's 2-1 victory at Anfield over Liverpool as a precaution because his knee did not feel in top condition.
Safety: Nemanja Vidic was rested as a precaution
Vidic spent several months recovering from anterior cruciate ligament damage last season so Sir Alex Ferguson thought it was better to be safe than sorry.
'He was just feeling a bit tight round about his knee and we decided just to give him a break today,' explained Ferguson. 'Hopefully he’ll be alright next week.'
United face Newcastle on Wednesday night in the League Cup but Vidic is not expected to feature.
