Since returning from injury in October, Manchester United have conceded two goals in seven and a half matches with their captain in their defense, in four and a half matches without their captain the Red Devils conceded 11 goals.
The impact of the Serbian on the pitch is undoubtedly massive and the impact of him missing in action can also be described as the same. When Vidic went down in Manchester United’s UEFA Champions League match against FC Basel in the first half fans collectively held their breath, the big Serbian was later seen with crutches and fans expected the worst.
It is now revealed that Vidic has torn three major ligaments in his knee and will be out for the remainder of the season. Manchester United manager has revealed that his team will not buy a replacement for Vidic in January. The Reds’ will rely on the likes of Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Jonny Evans to fill that void left by their captain.
