Nemanja Vidic, who has been previously sent off three times against Manchester United's arch rivals Liverpool, today celebrated NOT being shown a red card as United edged their way to a 2-1 victory over the Anfield outfit.
Serbian international Vidic also found his way onto the scoresheet with a header from fellow centre-half Patrice Evra deflecting off him into the net, putting United 2-0 after Robin Van Persie opened the scoring. Daniel Sturridge reduced the deficit for the merseysiders with a goal on his league debut (after also scoring at Mansfield in the FA Cup last week)
Sir Alec 'Guiness' Ferguson was delighted with the result and also the fact that Vidic was not sent off. "Obviously the recent contract renewal of referee Howard Webb played a huge factor in Vidic staying on the pitch" said Sir Alec.
It is not clear if Luis Suarez shook hands with Patrice Evra or other United opponents at the end of the match, as recently he has been using his hand to score goals, and Scouse manager Brenda Rodgers will want the Uruguayan cheater to rest his hand.
