Nemanja Vidic will be miss out from Manchester United’s next 2 matches after his harsh tackle on Chelsea’s Eden Hazard saw him receiving a red card. The player and the club later tried to appeal against the red card but it was rejected and the Football Association already stated a response stating: “The player’s three-match suspension commences with immediate effect.”
The Serbian defender is going to miss out from Manchester United’s Premier League matches against Cardiff City and Stoke City.
This is another huge blow for David Moyes and the struggling team that each week seems to do worse, considering they are out of the top 5 spots of the Premier League and already eliminated from the Capital One Cup as well as the FA Cup as they were defeated against Sunderland and Swansea City.
The former player of Spartak Moscow released some statements of his own as he talked about the situation that Manchester United are going through and he even claimed that the title race is over as they are too far behind to have any chances on recovering.
Vidic told Sky Sports: “We are too far behind and we have now to focus on the top three or four. We have to be positive; today we didn’t play a bad game. They had three shots and scored three goals and that’s the difference in the game, we have been punished for every mistake we made.
“It’s not going to be easy; we have to now fight to achieve the Champions League. We have to stay positive and stick together and work hard. With a bit of luck hopefully we can achieve that.”
Vidic later went on saying that David Moyes is not the man to blame for the sudden downhill path that the club is going through. The Scottish tactician has a different thought of mind than Vidic, as Moyes recently stated that the title is still in their reach.
