Man United captain Vidic out for 2 months

BY foxsports • September 25, 2012

Manchester United says captain Nemanja Vidic will be sidelined for about two months following right knee surgery.

The Serbian defender missed the final five months of last season after rupturing a cruciate ligament, and United says he's now had a meniscus operation on the same knee.

United says Vidic was initially rested for Sunday's match against Liverpool as a precaution ''after he complained of tightness in his knee, however, further medical investigation revealed the underlying problem.''
