Manchester United hero Vidic blasts Arsenal over defence

Manchester United hero Vidic blasts Arsenal over defence”

His comments came after current manager Jose Mourinho slammed his players for being "in the moon" after coming from behind to beat rivals Manchester City last weekend, only to lose humiliatingly to relegation favourites West Brom at home.

United slumped to defeat to West Brom yesterday. "There are six players against three and there is no communication about who is going to go and attack the ball, who is going to cover", he told Sky Sports.

Vidic understands why the Old Trafford crowd were frustrated at a dour first-half showing from their side.

Everything was complicated. Players, they didn't want or they couldn't play simple, everything was slow, everything was one more touch, everything was one more flick, one more trick, one more turn, ball lost, and no continuity and no fluidity in our football - I don't think we deserved to lose, but we gave them the opportunity to win the match. "For a team who is in the top seven who concede that many goals, I think they are doing well to be in that position". The players didn't perform the way they wanted.

"They have a good team, good players, but sometimes I think the players have to show desire, show energy, run more than other teams".

"It's sad to see Man United lose at home to West Brom, a team who have won just three games all season".

Vidic revealed that even after winning a magnificent double in 2008, lifting the UEFA Champions League and Premier League, he and his teammates were focusing on next season very soon after.

"It hurts [losing to West Brom], because United need a good spirit ahead of the Tottenham match [FA Cup semi-final at Wembley on Saturday], an important match", he added.

'It seems like he (Jose) is saying there is a problem with mentality in the players. But the celebrations of the win, though it was fantastic, should have stopped for the players once they left the stadium because despite the victory, City were always going to be Premier League champions, and not United.
