While the whole football world has been harping Nemanja Vidic with harsh criticisms about his underperformance at Inter Milan, the former Man U captain seems to have the blessings of his coach. Inter Milan coach Mazzarri (Walter) has actively protested against the criticisms, extending his defense for the unfortunate player.
Vidic is definitely no less than some legend is his old club Man U but his stints at Inter Milan so far is somewhat akin to a bad nightmare.
Nemanja Vidic is nothing short of a Manchester United legend, but his tenure thus far at Inter would be best described as something of a nightmare.
The ex Man u captain made a serious wrong on coming back from his suspension as his new club settled for tie with Palermo, while poor performances against Fiorentina and Inter saw Nerazzurri routed.
Vidic’s performance this weekend just furthered the doubts regarding his suitability in continuing at top level. His errant clear-up lane on permitted Callejon (Jose) to net on field for Partenopei, which caused Inter to battle back for points in last 10 minutes. However, Inter Milan chief has absolved Nemanji of any sort of wrongdoing in Napoli encounter, stressing that he is the one to be blamed for unfortunate results.
“Nemanji is a footballer & I am the coach”, explained the Inter chief clarifying Vidic’s stance amidst harsh criticisms. “Coach is the one who is actually responsible for anything that is happening on field, no matter what was the defence. Some are blaming him for Jose’s goal but I would say that was headed inception & he had this misfortune of unfavourable rebound”, he continued.
“The error that was committed are by those players who left that attacker free. Vidic is not faulty here as he was right there where he’s supposed to be.”

The cash injection that Brendan Rodgers received after selling Luis Suarez has allowed him to reinforce just about every area of the squad as Liverpool has signed new defenders, midfielders and forwards.
Fabio Borini and Rickie Lambert are the new forwards that Rodgers has so far signed during this summer transfer window with both of those attacking players expected to fill in the gap left by the Uruguayan Luis Suarez and play alongside the duo which consists of Raheem Sterling and Daniel Sturridge as the main scoring outlet of Liverpool for the years to come.
Even with all of those offensive players at the disposal of Brendan Rodgers, rumors still continue being transmitted involving Ac.Milan’s Mario Balotelli and a possible transfer to Liverpool.
There are a few concerning elements that surrounds Balotelli as the Italian attacker has experienced problems with just about every manager he has worked with throughout his entire career. Balotelli has dramatically improved as a player compared to some years ago but he still continues being a short tempered performer that could cause issues in the dressing room of Liverpool and this is not something that Brendan Rodgers would like to have in his squad.
Radamel Falcao is another high profile player who has lured the attention of Rodgers but this would be an even more difficult target to sign taking into consideration that the Colombian has already voiced his desire to play in the Santiago Bernabeu as a performer of Real Madrid as he does not have any intention of making a move to the Premier League anytime soon but if Liverpool is willing to offload a substantially high amount of money for Falcao then they could tempt As.Monaco on releasing the Colombian attacker.
