Nemanja Vidic’s agent has slammed rumours linking him with a move to Juventus as nothing but ‘hot air’.
This isn’t the first time that Silvano Martina has quashed exit talk as earlier this year he labelled the rumours as ‘pub talk’ that nobody should pay attention to and he has moved quickly once again to stop these rumours gathering pace ahead of the busy festive period.
Speaking to Fantagazzetta, Martina said: “I obviously read these rumours. I do not understand how they manage to get out every time. It is useless to make comment on pub talk. Hot air.
“Vidic is sick of hearing some rumours speculating on the future. I do not want to hear any more about these situations that occasionally come out of the papers.
“I do not understand all these rumours. I repeat – if a paper comes out with a joke, then it is not given that others should follow. Some things you can’t comment on.”
He may be 32 but we have seen Vidic getting back to his very best this season after making a full recovery from that terrible knee injury sustained against Basel.
Unnerving and uncompromising, his presence in United’s defence is important and it is great to hear that he has absolutely no intention of leaving.
A few years ago, people labelled Rio Ferdinand as past it but last year he played one of his best seasons at United and if he can continue in this fine form, Vidic may well do the same.
