Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic is pleased with the performance of Michael Keane against Valerenga on Sunday.

Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic was pleased with the performance of teenager Michael Keane during his side's pre-season game against Valerenga on Sunday.

Keane made his first senior start for the Red Devils in Oslo, playing a full 90 minutes in which neither side managed to break the deadlock.

The 19-year-old defender's performance at left-back caught the eye of Vidic, who played in central defence.

"I'm glad he's had a full ninety minutes," Vidic told MUTV. "He was confident on the ball and it's a big change from the youth academy, obviously, and I think he did really well."

United's next pre-season friendly is against Barcelona on Tuesday.
