Nemanja Vidic aiming for the start of next season

Nemanja Vidic is hopeful of being fit for the start of the 2012-13 season.

Vidic has been sidelined since December after damaging his knee ligaments which ruled him out for the remainder of the season.

Sir Alex Ferguson recently confirmed he does not expect the Serbian to be ready for the club’s pre-season tour, but Vidic is positive about his recovery. “Vida won’t be ready for going on the tour but hopefully he’ll be ready for the start of the season,” Ferguson told the club’s official website.

Nemanja Vidic said in the Sun Newspaper: “I can now run and do some things on the pitch which is better for me psychologically because for the last four months it’s been every day in the gym, which is hard.”

“But the worst part is behind me. I can look forward to the second half of the rehabilitation and work more on my fitness. Hopefully, I’ll be fit for the big kick-off.”

Enjoy that? Give it a share!
