Manchester United confirm Nemanja Vidic out for rest of season

Manchester United have confirmed that captain Nemanja Vidic will miss the rest of the 2011-12 season after suffering knee ligament damage in their 2-1 defeat at Basel in the Champions League.

Vidic twisted his right knee tussling with Basel's Marco Streller during the first half in Switzerland, and immediately looked in distress after the incident and was carried off on a stretcher before leaving the ground on crutches.

BBC Sports website quotes manager Alex Ferguson as saying "Nemanja is out for the season - It is bad news. He will be a loss."
