One player who is hoping to feature against Liverpool is Wayne Rooney, who made his first start of the season against Chelsea. And the Reds legend produced a performance of great industry and passion, earning widespread acclaim on the terraces at Old Trafford.
Such a reception was, of course, noteworthy following a summer of speculation linking the striker with a move away from M16. However, Vidic insists he wasn’t surprised by the behaviour of United’s fans, who have always supported every player who wears the famous red shirt.
The Serbian added: "The fans have always supported the players. Wayne is no different. Wayne has been supported throughout the years. I don't think there was a question he would have been supported. He has scored so many goals and won so many trophies. I expected him to receive a good reception."
Nemanja Vidic was speaking to PA Sport after Monday's 0-0 draw with Chelsea.
