Nemanja Vidić has admitted it will take “two or three months” to rediscover his best form for Manchester United.

The Serbia international has made two Premier League appearances for the Red Devils this season after recovering from knee surgery.

The United captain helped Sir Alex Ferguson’s men keep just their fourth clean sheet of the campaign in a 2-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

The 31-year-old has made just 18 appearances over the past two seasons after an injury-hit spell, and Vidić is hoping to continue his progress in the coming months.

“The doctor is managing the games I am playing at the moment,” he told MUTV.

“Over the first two or three months I have to really look at that because sometimes I might have a reaction.

“This is a process I have to go through.

“I am glad I have managed to play after three months. It is nice to be on the pitch and playing games.

“Hopefully I can play more often so I can build my form and play better.”

Vidic has scored 17 goals in 249 appearances for United after completing a £7m switch to Old Trafford from Spartak Moscow.
