Vidic – Next few weeks crucial

first_img Press Association “That’s important. If you have a bad result you have to concentrate on doing the right things – in training and with your behaviour, then in the matches. “You try to lead by example first in the dressing room, then out on the pitch. “We are lucky here because there are so many players who are experienced and mature people, they help the team try to achieve what we want to do.” He added: “You have to respect your team-mates; if you respect them, you get respect back.
