Nemanja Vidic has added to the pain of Manchester United’s Champions League elimination in Switzerland.
The central defender could be ruled out of the remainder of the season after sustaining a serious knee injury against FC Basel.
It is feared Vidic has ruptured the cruciate ligament which would be a massive blow to the Old Trafford club.
Meanwhile, Sir Alex Ferguson has annoyed UEFA President Michel Platini with claims that United’s elimination from the Champions League and demotion to the Europa League is their “punishment.”
Platini is incensed by the Reds’ manager belittling the Europa League which he describes as a quality competition.
