Vidic: We'll stick together

Club captain Nemanja Vidic says Manchester United must remain united if the team is to turn things around on the pitch and mount a title challenge. A bit of luck wouldn’t go astray either, the Serbian says.

Vidic, who was sent off for an injury-time tackle on Eden Hazard in United’s 3-1 defeat against Chelsea on Sunday and will miss the next three domestic fixtures, spoke exclusively to ManUtd.com after the match.

“It’s important we stick together and work hard for each other,” he said. “If we do that then I think we can turn things around.

“If you look at the whole game [at Stamford Bridge] I don’t think we played too badly. I don’t think losing three goals really tells the story.”

Indeed, David Moyes’ men dominated early proceedings, completing almost twice as many passes as Chelsea in the first 15 minutes and forcing Petr Cech into a smart save from Ashley Young.

The Reds were made to pay for failing to convert possession and territory into goals, however, and were 2-0 down at half-time. A third Chelsea goal – and a third for striker Samuel Eto’o – followed just four minutes after the restart.
