Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic has now signed a new four year contract which will keep him at Old Trafford till 2014. There were many fans this summer not sure if the Serbian would return to the red devils after the World Cup due to all the rumours linking him with a move to the Santiago Bernabéu. But he kept loyal and made the right decision football wise, easy know he isn’t a City player (Greedy *****)!
Its fare to say that Vidic didn’t have the best of seasons last year but still, I don’t think any Manchester United fan would want to see him leave United because we all know what he is capable of doing. The season we won the double (2008) I thought was by far his best yet and hopefully he can do it again this season because we can’t rely on Ferdinand seeing he was out for most of last season with injuries. But don’t get me wrong, Ferdinand and Vidic have one of the best defensive partnerships in today’s game.
Ferguson who was unsure about Vidic’s future when asked during the summer said:
“We are delighted Nemanja has committed his future to the club. This kills all the silly speculation over the past few months.
“Nemanja has developed into one of the best centre-halves in Europe and we are pleased he will be here for many years to come.”
Vidic then said:
“I am very happy to sign this contract. I came to this club when I was young and have developed enormously with the help of the manager, coaching staff and my team-mates.
“During my time here we have had a lot of success and I look forward to continuing that success in the coming seasons.”
