Man Utd star pleased with return
Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic has revealed his delight after returning from injury.
Vidic returned from injury in United's 0-0 draw with Valerenga in Norway on Sunday.
The Serbian defender had been out of action with a raptured anterior cruciate ligament injury since December.
"I felt well," Vidic told MUTV. "After eight months without a game it's obvious that you have to get used to your positioning, and still fitness-wise it's not as good. Hopefully it will be in a few weeks, but I'm pleased.
"My knee felt well, I felt well and hopefully the next game will be better. It was frustrating, but obviously I knew I would be out for six months.
"I tried to make the best of it, to work hard and when I come back to be the same as I was before the injury. This was my target, and we'll see how good a job I did in that six months.
"It's hard, but it's part of the football career. Any sportsman has the risk of injuries and hopefully this is the past and better days are coming for me."
United face Spanish giants Barcelona in a friendly in Sweden on Wednesday.
Vidic added: "Obviously it was the first appearance for a few players, obviously myself as well.
"It was a good test. Obviously the result was not as we expected but still we had chances we didn't score. I think it was a good game and a really good test for us.
"(Barcelona) will be a tough game, but obviously it will be a good test for us. We need those games before the league starts. We have to know it's a friendly game and it doesn't count for the trophies and points.
"Last year we beat Barcelona in a friendly game and lost in a final."
