Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic admits he is delighted to be back after returning to action against Valerenga at the weekend.

The centre-back has not featured for the Red Devils since November last year when he ruptured anterior cruciate ligaments in his knee.

However, he looks to be well on the path to fitness, and was able to get in 60 minutes of game time for United during the goalless draw against the Norwegian outfit.

"I felt well," he told United's official website. "After eight months without a game it's obvious that you have to get used to your positioning, and still fitness-wise it's not as hopefully it will be in a few weeks, but I'm pleased.

"My knee felt well, I felt well and hopefully the next game will be better.

"It was frustrating, but obviously I knew I would be out for six months. I tried to make the best of it, to work hard and when I come back to be the same as I was before the injury.

"This was my target and we'll see how good a job I did in that six months. It's hard, but it's part of the football career.

"Any sportsman has the risk of injuries and hopefully this is the past and better days are coming for me."
