More Tribulations for Manchester United’s Defense: Nemanja Vidic on Trial for Violent Conduct?

August 24, 2009

The alleged incident occurred in a heated moment between Nemmies and Wigan’s Hugo Rodallega

Well someone’s about to go get herself a little powdered barrister wig and go all Legally Blonde: UK.  Because it appears Nemanja Vidic is facing a trial for an alleged slap to the face of Wigan Athletic’s Hugo Rodallega.

The English FA have announced they will review the footage of Saturday’s match and pass a judgment which could see the Serbian defender out for 3 matches.

Manchester United already suffer a weakened defense with Rio Ferdinand out for another 2 weeks, and Jonny Evans needing surgery and looking noticeably hurt while stepping off the pitch at the DW stadium this weekend.

Referree Howard Webb said he did not see the incident occur, but Howard Webb’s record of vision isn’t exactly anything to go by (he does have a price on his head in Poland).  I didn’t see the slap either.  And I follow the movement of Vidlicious like a hawk.  He’s innocent!

I’m channeling Elle Woods as we speak.  I think I’m going to go for more of  an Marie Antoinette (in robes)  and less for John Cleese in “A Fish Called Wanda” look.

    think it was just a flailing arm that caught rodallega.

    Vidic didnt do it on purpose, but Rodallega made the most of it. If Vida is found guilty may be at least one match ban though

    I hope he gets banned. He’s play for Utd – that’s bad enough.

    A) Nemanja does not “flail.”
    B) Not nice, George. I’d still like your girlfriend even if she played for Liverpool. Give me and Nemmies the same respect :-P

    Vidic couldn’t have done it on purpose, because if he did try to hit Rodallega, he would still be in the hospital right about now.

    Hmm I think an immediate one match ban would do pretty good for me, just enough to allow the Gunners to run riot at Old Trafford on Saturday and allow him to rest up nicely before the crucial qualifier against France which will qualify Serbia for the world cup!

    vidic knew exactly what he was doing and in the eyes of the law will be banned for 3 matches – justice!
