Saha Out, Vidic Possible

  • 22 October 2007

LOUIS Saha's injury nightmare continues with the striker ruled out of Manchester United's Champions League trip to Dynamo Kiev - while Nemanja Vidic remains a doubt.

The injury-plagued French international was hoping to make the trip to the Ukraine despite missing the 4-1 win at Aston Villa with a long-term knee problem.

But he was not United's travelling party which headed out to the Ukraine, raising fresh doubts over his long-term fitness.

England duo Gary Neville and Owen Hargreaves were also missing but Serbian defender Nemanja Vidic, who sat out the Villa Park win, was in the squad, even though Sir Alex Ferguson remains unconvinced the former Spartak Moscow player will be available after suffering concussion during the Premier League win over Wigan.

Ferguson said: "Vidic is a doubt for Tuesday. He trained on Friday but he is still feeling some reaction to the knock he got against Wigan.

"In that situation you can't take a chance. I'm hopeful he will be ready. We will see how he is. He will be close but I'm not so sure he will be ready to play in Kiev."
