“AIK worked very hard and they made some trouble for us,” added Vida. “We allowed them too many chances and we have to improve our shape in defence. We can work on that and I think we will be fine.”
It was Vidic’s first match for a David Moyes United team and the Serbian centre-back is pleased with the progress the Reds are making under the new boss.
“When you change the manager it’s a different type of training and preparation for the games,” he said, “but we’ve done nothing that we didn’t do before. We’ve worked really hard and we have two more games to pick up our freshness and then we will be ready for the start of the season.
“We have trained really well and it’s the matches we need now. These kind of matches, against AIK, are a good test for us. They are in the middle of their season and they played some good football. We found it a difficult, testing match. I want that, I want difficult matches before the start of the season so we are ready for some big matches at the beginning of the campaign.”
