Nemanja Vidic has today given us a massive boost by claiming that he hopes to be fit for the new Premier League season begins in August. The 30-year old Serbian centre back has been out injured after damaging his cruciate ligaments against Basel in the Champions League back in December.
Vidic said: “I can now run and do some things on the pitch which is better for me psychologically because for the last four months it’s been every day in the gym, which is hard.”
“But the worst part is behind me. I can look forward to the second half of the rehabilitation and work more on my fitness — hopefully, I’ll be fit for the big kick-off.”
Having Nemanja back will be like a new signing, it’s great news to hear that he will potentially be ready to go for the season opener on the weekend of August 18th/19th. Let’s hope having our captain back will sure up our defence as we attempt to win back our Premier League trophy.
