The Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic has said that he is extremely disappointed along with his teammates not to have taken all three points from the recent match against Swansea. Manchester United could only manage a 1-1 draw with the Welsh team during the weekend.

As a result of the two dropped points, they are allowed their arch rivals Manchester City to close the gap to just four points in the league. United had a lot of opportunities in the match, but were unable to make them count due to a lot of blocks from Swansea.

Vidic has praised the display of the Welsh team who have been one of the surprise packages this season under the new manager Michael Laudrup. This was the first game Nemanja Vidic was playing from the start after more than three months. After struggling to contain the Premier league top scorer Michu during the early part of the game, Vidic regained his confidence that has made him one of the best defenders in the world. United have certainly missed the presence of the 30-year-old, who has been one of the best. United will now be facing Newcastle United in the home match on Boxing Day hoping to get back to winning ways.

“We had a few chances but you have to give Swansea credit as well. They fought well and gave everything to get a point out of the game. Overall, I think they played well, we had a few chances and were unlucky. We started the game well but in that 10 or 15-minute spell after we scored we dropped our performance and Swansea punished us with a goal,” said Vidic after the match. Chelsea’s victory over Aston Villa after the match meant that they closed the gap to the leaders to just 11 points.
