Nemanja Vidic needs more time, says Roberto Mancini

New Inter Milan manager Roberto Mancini reckons that defender Nemanja Vidic needs more time to adapt in the Italian Serie A.

The manager has had to defend the Serbian who joined the club only in the summer. He was expected to bring some much-needed confidence, quality, and experience to the back four. His start to life in Italy has been extremely poor as Vidic has found himself on the wrong end of several goals conceded by his team.

This led to the 33-year-old immediately being dropped for Mancini’s first match in charge against arch-rivals AC Milan.
