Asia tour excites Vidic

Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic is relishing the chance to lead the Reds during the summer visits to Australia and Asia in preparation for the new season.

The Reds will play matches in Bangkok, Sydney, Yokohama, Osaka and Hong Kong as part of Tour 2013 Presented By Aon and Vidic says all the players are looking forward to the trip, especially the Asian leg.

"I’m very excited. We’ve had good experiences in Asia before and I hope we have a good one again," he told "We know we have supporters all around the world and we try each year to give them a chance to see a game and meet us. United have done a great job at that over the years.

"The fans in Asia are always very excited to see us and are very passionate about Manchester United. They respect the players and they love the club. Even at Old Trafford you can see so many of them each week – they fly all the way to Manchester to watch the games.

"It’s always been nice for us to see the different countries when we travel to Asia and I’m sure we’ll have another good experience this time."
