Former Man Utd skipper Vidic retires


Former Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic announced his retirement from football on Friday, saying that injuries had taken their toll.

The 34-year old Serbian defender moved to Inter Milan in 2014. He made 28 appearances in his debut season but after a hernia operation in August did not feature for Roberto Mancini’s side at all this term and left the club by mutual consent in January.

He is best known for his days at Old Trafford where, under the guidance of Sir Alex Ferguson, he helped Manchester United to five Premier League titles and the Champions League crown over a eight-year spell.

Vidic also played 56 times for Serbia.
