Manchester United have confirmed that captain Nemanja Vidic will miss the rest of the season after suffering knee ligament damage in their 2-1 defeat at Basel in the Champions League.
The centre-half twisted his right knee tussling with Basel’s Marco Streller during the first half in Switzerland.
The Serbian and Streller chased down the ball and their legs tangled.
“Nemanja is out for the season,” United boss Sir Alex Ferguson said. “It is bad news. He will be a loss.”
Vidic immediately looked in distress after the incident and was carried off on a stretcher before leaving the ground on crutches.
