The former Reds captain, who recently left Inter Milan, has decided to call time on his career at the age of 34. He played for United for eight years from January 2006 to May 2014, helping the club to win five Premier League titles, three League Cups, the Champions League and the Club World Cup.”

Nemanja Vidic is a footballing legend. For 8 years it was nothing short of pure joy watching him lead the defense along with his center back partner Rio Ferdinand. The routine was simply to sit back, relax, put your feet up we’re in the last quarter of an hour up a goal and Nemanja’s in the box getting his head to crosses like a ’90s pre-teen snatching up K-Ci and JoJo giveaway tickets. Nemanja had an innate ability to be wherever the ball was going to be and a viking-like physical imposition that wins the 50-50 challenges on command. And hey it turns out this came in handy on the other side of the field as well and he managed to get his fair share of goals for an extremely defensive minded player.

Merciless, hard working, ruthless, fearless, probably slightly insane and he had a chant to match. The Manchester United fans put together this little ditty and did not hold back when it came time to serenade:

“Nemanja whoa-o-whoa,
Nemanja whoa-o-whoa,
He come’s from Serbia,
He’ll f***ing murder ya”

And then there was this tackle which I’d would describe as a jackhammer turned up to 11 encountering some soft underbelly concrete on the edge of the rose garden. Kyle Walker sorry buddy ya flipped right over with VENOM. Enjoy

 

Nemanja whoa-o-whoa,
Nemanja whoa-o-whoa,
He come’s from Serbia,
He’ll f***ing murder ya
