Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic is confident that the club have the qualities to re-tain their Premier League title this season despite both Manchester City and Chelsea strengthening their squads this summer.
United haven’t been very successful in the transfer market so far this summer as they have failed on signing both Thiago Alcantara and also Cesc Fabregas, but the club-captain is confident that the side still have enough quality to win the Premier League title yet again.
The 2013/2014 season will be United’s first campaign under David Moyes after he took over from the retired Sir Alex Ferguson and a lot of people are suggesting that the club will suffer without having Ferguson in the dug-out.
Talking to Sky Sports News, Vidic revealed that he is confident with the squad’s depth and he is adamant that they can have yet another successful season.
“We have a good team, we have a big squad – we are the champions,” he told Sky Sports News.
“We have a lot of young players in the team and over the last two years they have improved a lot, which is important for the team and the club.
“I believe we are strong enough to compete for all trophies – one or two more signings would be good for the team but things are good.
“Cesc (Fabregas) is a good player but it’s not up to me to say who we need or not – any player who comes here will be accepted, just as I was when I came here.
“But it’s not something we think of much – we just try to focus on our game and to help the manager achieve what we really want. That’s our aim.”
