Nobody is denying that Rio wasn't very good in the last two seasons. He was.
but Vidic has been better this season and like I said earlier, Vidic has been much more consistent for Manchester United than Rio has. Yes, nobody is forgetting how good he was in the last few years, but you also can't forget how inconsistent he was before that. We paid 30 million for him. We should have been seeing those level of performances a lot sooner.
I am convinced that if Vidic keeps up such good form for the next four-five years, in twenty years time, people will look back on him as the better defender out of the two and one of Fergie's best ever signings.
