15 quotes about Manchester United’s greatest No.15 – Nemanja Vidic

Quick Reads

One of Manchester United‘s greatest ever defenders celebrates his birthday this weekend as Nemanja Vidic turns 36.

Vidic joined United in 2006 and, after a brief period of adjustment, soon established himself as one of the fiercest centre-backs in the game.

By the time he left Old Trafford in 2014, the Serbian had won five league titles, three League Cups, five Community Shields, the Club World Cup and, of course, the Champions League.

We obviously wouldn’t hear a bad word said about big Nemanja – for fear he’d kick our heads in, mainly – so we’ve left it to those who played with and against him to explain why he was so revered in the Premier League.
