Moyes Impressed By Vidic

Manchester United manager David Moyes says that he sees no reason for them not to extend Nemanja Vidic's contract, as long as he stays fit.

The United skipper's current deal expires at the end of this season and although there has been talk of a new deal in the media, nothing official had been announced.

Moyes says that they have not discussed it yet, but he is certain that the Serbian will earn a new deal on his current fitness and form.

"It is something I have not discussed with the chief executive yet but Vida's form at the moment would suggest he is well worthy of that," said Moyes.

"Probably his injuries have been the reason why you might have to look at it, so the big thing is to see how he goes.

"But his form has been very good. We just need to hope he gets through and doesn't pick up any more injuries."

Former United boss Sir Alex Ferguson recently said that the Red Devils would be fine as long as Vidic stayed fit and Moyes agreed.

"A lot of attention has been taken by the form of Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie but defensively, we have done really well and Vida has been excellent," said Moyes.

"Sir Alex is right about keeping Vida fit because he is a top defender.

"I have worked with some really good central defenders. But I have got to say, in the short time I have been here, Vida has been as good as there is.

"He is everything you would want in a centre-half.

"He is tough. He is a great leader in the way he plays. He is aggressive at the right moments.

"I have been really impressed with how good a player he is."
