Evra and Vidic fight forced Sir Alex Ferguson into drastic Man Utd decision

A fight between Manchester United defenders Patrice Evra and Nemanja Vidic forced former manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, into making a drastic decision for the good of the team.

Evra and Vidic both won five Premier League titles as one of the strongest backlines in top-flight history.

The 2007/08 United team conceded just 22 league goals and there have only been two more successful defences ever in the Premier League.

Both Evra and Vidic were a key part of the Red Devils 2008 title-winning side but the Frenchman and the Serbian didn't always see eye to eye.

The flying full-back has revealed that Rio Ferdinand had to step in between the pair of them after a bust-up.

"We had a fight, me and him [Vidic], and didn't speak for three months," said Evra, via the Manchester United website.

"We played together, and we didn't even say a word. I never told him to go left or go right. He was the same. Ferguson had to swap Rio Ferdinand to play on the left side with me.

"It was like that for three months until, after a game, I remember he came to me in the dressing room and gave me a high-five.

"Everyone was like 'finally' because we were best friends together, Vida and me. We have a deep story together.

"I love him so much. We struggled but we were really real me and him. If we were doing something wrong, we'd argue but, in the same way, it was a really great relationship."
