Manchester - Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic will miss the next eight weeks after undergoing surgery on a knee injury, the English Premier League club announced on Tuesday.

Vidic was rested for the 2-1 weekend win at Liverpool after complaining of tightness in his right knee but further tests revealed the true extent of the problem, and the Serb has since had a meniscus operation.

The 30-year-old, who is United's club captain, missed the final five months of last season after rupturing cruciate knee ligaments in a Champions League defeat to Basel in Switzerland.
