Pre Match Press Conference Highlights & Team News

On Vidic

"He hasn't started training yet"

 

On Berbatov's importance to the club.

"Of course, he's a member of our squad. And it's an exhausting season."

 

ON Wayne Rooney
"He's not playing tomorrow,"

"It can be difficult to assess a hamstring injury. Obviously we hope we have him back quickly. He did a bit of jogging this morning but that's all. It's difficult to say.

ON Hernandez
"
is straightforward, it's a dead leg. He should be ready for next Saturday."
