Vidic: Finale to be taken seriously

Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic insists they will be taking their clash with Blackpool on Survival Sunday seriously.

It has been suggested United might rest most of their top stars for the home clash with relegation-threatened Blackpool with one eye on the Champions League final against Barcelona.

Vidic has reassured Blackpool's relegation rivals that United will treat the game professionally and look to win the game so as not to hand the Seasiders an unfair advantage over their fellow strugglers.

"We have to work hard, we have to prepare for the next game," Vidic told Sky Sports News.


"Barcelona I have to say is the most important game for us, but Blackpool we want to play well, we want to play the best we can and we always expect to win games and we will try to do that."

Vidic insists United will not sit on their laurels now they have won a record 19th league title and is confident there will be more to come in the future.

"I think just to win the title it means a lot especially after last year when we didn't win the league when we lost by just one point," added Vidic.

"It is important [to win a 19th title], but I don't think 19 will the last one it will be many more I hope.

"It's important we have won the most leagues in this country, but it is not something we will stop and be happy with."
