Sir Alex Ferguson says that the arrival of new defender Nemanja Vidic could help United win things in the long term.

"As I keep pointing out, good defenders win you things," He told Pravda TV.

"In my time we have had people like Steve Bruce, Gary Pallister, Paul Parker, Denis Irwin, Ronnie Johnson and Jaap Stam.

"This lad is really natural and athletic. I know you need good defenders and that is exactly what this lad is."
