Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic has denied reports he rowed with Sir Alex Ferguson over the injury that kept him out of the FA Cup defeat to Leeds.

Vidic missed the 1-0 defeat at Old Trafford after suffering an unexplained injury during the pre-match warm-up and there were reports of a bust-up with Ferguson after the United boss said he “couldn’t tell you at all” why the defender had not been available to play.

However, Vidic says the comments have been misconstrued and that he is not trying to negotiate a move away from the club.

“Everything surprised me a lot,” he told Sportski Zurnal. “Ferguson said that he didn’t talk with the club doctor, but he didn’t say that he doesn’t believe in my injuries and that we are in a fight.

“Everybody in the club knows that I have a marvellous understanding with my coach Ferguson. Moreover, I’m not unhappy at Old Trafford. I’m just injured and that is the end of the story.

“I hope that I will be able to play as soon as possible. The doctors told me that I will not be able to play for the next seven or ten days so I don’t think that I will play against Birmingham City.”
