Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic will be fit for the start of the new Premier League season. Vidic did not travel with the squad for a pre-season tour in South Africa but Ferguson said the Serb was stepping up his training schedule after recovering from a ruptured cruciate knee ligament he suffered in a Champions League game last December. "Vidic will start the season. I am sure of that. He's doing good amounts of training but not in the competitive sense in the way the lads out here have done," says Ferguson. United's title bid was hampered by defensive injuries last season but Ferguson was also optimistic on the prospects of Chris Smalling recovering from a groin injury in time for the opening game of the season away at Everton on August 20.
