Vidic was not named in United’s 22 man squad that flew to Asia yesterday and United have moved quickly to allay any fears around the defender with a club’s spokesperson telling ManUtd.Com:
“It’s nothing serious.
“Nemanja has a touch of sciatica [pain stemming from nerves in the back] and may still join the tour at a later date.
“In the meantime, he’ll continue his pre-season preparations in Manchester at the Aon Training Complex.”
Despite suffering from sciatica, it is believed that Vidic will still play some part in this leg of United’s tour.
