Can you name Man Utd’s XI from Nemanja Vidic’s debut in 2006?
On January 25, 2006, Nemanja Vidic made the first appearance of his legendary Manchester United career in a 2-1 League Cup victory over Blackburn Rovers.
Signed from Spartak Moscow a couple of weeks prior, Vidic would go on to prove himself one of the all-time great January signings – he was even voted the Premier League’s greatest centre-back in 2020.
Having taken a 1-1 draw back from Ewood Park in the first leg of the League Cup semi-final, United won the second leg 2-1, booking their place in the final at Cardiff’s Millenium Stadium – where they secured an emphatic 4-0 victory over Wigan Athletic.
But how well do you remember that win over Blackburn? Vidic only played a few minutes, coming off the bench to help United see out their lead, and we want you to names that made Sir Alex Ferguson’s starting XI.
If this puts you in the mood for another challenge, why not have a go at naming Sir Alex Ferguson’s 30 most-used players at Man Utd?
