NemanjaVidic’s senior playing career spanned for around 16 years and the Serbian defender was able to perform with various clubs but by far his time spent with Manchester United was the most successful one as it was with the Premier League club that Vidic was able to become one of the best players in the world at a certain period of time as well as secure some of the most coveted pieces of silverware in football including the UEFA Champions League.
The Serbian defender joined Manchester United back on December of 2005 and from there on out, he was able to make consistent performances in each season. 5 years later and NemanjaVidic became the club captain of the Premier League outfit as he had taken over this position from his predecessor Gary Neville.
It’s hard to argue that at some point in the career of Vidic, he was one of the best defenders in the world and proof of this is the fact that the Serbian defender was included twice in the FIFA FIFPro World XI as well as being included in the Premier League Player of the Season for his performances in the season of 2008-09 and 2010-11.
There is no doubt whatsoever that NemanjaVidic is one of the most successful and talented players that has worn the jersey of Manchester United in the history of the club and the Serbian defender who is now retired has recently talked about what was one of the things that he hated the most during his time spent in Old Trafford as he said:
“I struggled with the weather in the beginning. Moscow is cold in winter but you don’t have rain you have sunshine.I was okay with the food in England: it was good at the training ground and I had a wife at home who knew how to cook, especially Serbian dishes. I really enjoyed Manchester, the social life and its people. The only thing I had a problem with was the weather’’
