The Serbian defender will make an emotional final home appearance against the Tigers on Tuesday evening and has “no regrets” over his decision to leave the club
Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic will take his final bow at Old Trafford when Ryan Giggs’ side entertain Hull City in their last home game of the season on Tuesday evening.
Vidic, 32, has developed into one of the Premier League’s greatest defenders since signing for United in 2006, but the Serbian will join Italian side Inter in the summer after opting against renewing his contract with the club.
The central defender has made almost 300 appearances during his eight-year Old Trafford stay, winning five Premier League titles and the Champions League in 2008.
But despite the prospect of a fresh start under anticipated new manager Louis Van Gaal, who Goal revealed back in April has agreed to take over at Old Trafford, Vidic insists he has “no regrets” over his decision to leave.
“I have no regrets,” he told Sky Sports. “I’ve given this club 100 per cent and my time at this club will always rank as the best part of my career.
“It has been a great eight years – or a great seven years because at the moment we are not doing so well.
“I never considered staying in England as the only club I ever wanted to play in this country is United and I have been lucky enough to be part of this club for so many years. I’ve got so many great memories. I never could have imagined winning 15 trophies, including five Premer League titles and the Champions League.
“I’ve played for the greatest manager [Sir Alex Ferguson] and I have learned a lot, not just on the pitch but off the pitch as well.”
