Serbian defender Nemanja Vidic will skip Manchester United in Sunday’s clash against Liverpool at Old Trafford, manager Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed.

With Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs not playing every week, Rio Ferdinand has been the regular stand-in over the past few years and was captain on Tuesday when Vidic missed the Champions League opener with Rangers.

But the United boss confirmed that Vidic will again lead the team out against Liverpool, as he has done in all four Premier League matches so far this season.

“As I explained last week, what we wanted was someone who was consistently available for us,” Ferguson told MUTV.

“Everyone recognises Nemanja Vidic would always be there. He has been fit all season and you don’t leave him out of the team unless you are going to rest him.

“He started the campaign as captain and it will stay that way.”
