Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson says that Nemanja Vidic is making "slow progress" in his return from injury.

Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson has revealed that Nemanja Vidic is making slow progress in his recovery from a calf injury, and could be out for longer than first thought.

The Serbian defender was withdrawn during United's opening-day win at West Bromwich Albion, and although initial estimates put him out for six weeks, the Scot has said that he is no closer to a return.

"It's slow progress with Nemanja," said Ferguson.

"Calves can be troublesome. He's not done any training [and] he's not making any great progress at the moment."

Premier League leaders United will try to maintain their 100% start to the season at Stoke City on Saturday.
