Vidic and Anderson miss Milan trip

Nemanja Vidic and Anderson have been ruled out of Manchester

United’s Champions League showdown with AC Milan on Tuesday night.

The pair were missing from the squad that flew out to Italy

on Monday morning for the clash at the San Siro.

Vidic, who has yet to play in 2010 after developing a nerve

problem in his leg, has been forced out as he is still a way off

returning to fitness.

It means United boss Sir Alex Ferguson must decide between

Jonny Evans or Wes Brown to partner Rio Ferdinand at the heart of

the defence.

It is not known if Anderson has not travelled because of

injury as the Brazilian has found himself out of favour in recent


Ryan Giggs is also missing for United as he recovers from the

broken arm he sustained against Aston Villa last week.

Otherwise United have no other injury problems to contend

with as they look to gain a positive result to bring back to Old

Trafford for the second leg.
