Vidic expects to win more trophies

Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic is confident the Community Shield trophy is the first of many he will get his hands on this season.

United, last season’s Premier League runners-up, defeated Chelsea 3-1 at Wembley to claim a record 18th Shield.

Antonio Valencia and Javier Hernandez gave Sir Alex Ferguson’s men a two-goal lead and Dimitar Berbatov rounded off the win with a cool finish after Salomon Kalou had pulled a goal back for Chelsea.

Vidic said afterwards: "I believe there will be more (trophies) – this is just the beginning.

"I think we have a good squad and showed today we have energy and showed some hunger.

"I think we did well today," added the defender. "Some players who haven’t played a lot pre-season had time to build up their fitness and they did well.

"Dimitar had a lot of pressure last year and we hope this year we will score more goals."

Berbatov added: "It’s my first goal in the Community Shield, so it’s a good day for me. It’s always good to score against a good side like Chelsea."

There was a difference in quality between Hernandez’s goal – a shot which went in via his head – and Berbatov’s composed finish.

But the Bulgarian said on Sky Sports: "A goal is a goal, it doesn’t matter how you score it. If the ball is in the net – that’s what counts."

Paul Scholes impressed in United’s midfield, with a fine through-ball in the build-up to Valencia’s goal arguably the high point.

The former England midfielder said: "It was a good game and we’re happy with the win.

"It’s more of a pre-season friendly but it’s a trophy, we’ve managed to win it and we’re more than happy to do that.

"It’s always good to beat Chelsea. They are a quality side who beat us three times last year. That’s disappointing but we’ve got off to the right start this year.

"We weren’t that far off last year – just one point in the league. With more determination this year hopefully we can go one step further."

However, asked if he was expecting a phone call from England manager Fabio Capello, with a view to revisiting his decision to end international career, Scholes laughed: "I don’t think so, no."
