Vida: I’ll Fight To Keep My United Place

Nemanja Vidic, who turns 30 this season, has claimed he’s as hungry as ever to win trophies, particularly the FA Cup which is missing from his collection. Speaking to CNN World Sport, our captain has claimed that if he doesn’t perform, there will be players ready to take his spot in the team. Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Jonny Evans will all be waiting for their opportunity and are all desperate to prove themselves, which should keep Vida on his toes.

“If you want to play for Man United you have to win everything!” said Vidic. “You have to be successful, otherwise, new players come and you have to fight for your place. I still have hunger to play, hunger to win the trophies, and I’m really happy. As long as I think like that, I will be good, but I would really like to win the FA Cup as well. I haven’t won the FA Cup yet, this is the trophy I really want to win. “

Vidic was named captain of United last summer and after winning the title in his first season with the armband, he has claimed it is something that makes him proud.

“It’s a big thing,” he continued. “To play week in and week out, is a big thing, and afterwards to be recognized as one of the leaders in the team, it’s really something to make you proud.”

    “ one of the leaders..”

    makes you proud to hear that, wouldn’t get that from captains of other clubs. Brilliant team ethic has always separated us from the rest.

  7. Doghouse says:

    If Vida is going to fight for something, he’s going to have it. I think he was sent from the future to kill John Conner, he just got sidetracked.

    Wonderful player, wonderful lad. Long may Nemanja Vidic be our captain!

    Really top man: Interview

  19. Balaji Sivaraman says:

    Doghouse, LOL!

    Seriously, what the fuck was that cunting cunt Balotelli thinking standing up to our Vida. He probably shit his pants at that very moment. I cannot tell you how much I wished our Captain would land a punch on him like Keano did with Shearer. Only in this case, it would’ve been a knockout blow. Some people would say, he had cojones. I just call him a bloody fool.

    As for Vidic, the best center half is a close battle between Vidic and Rio. But nobody can argue that it is the best defensive partnership in the world. I haven’t seen two defenders perfectly complement each other for an eternity. In fact, I think they should probably marry each other.

    Side tracked. Cool. Run John why you can.

  21. StatesideAussie says:

    FTM … thanks for the link, good interview. I find it hard to believe he’s on “only” 70k a week, though.

  22. RedDevil4Lyfe says:

    VIDA VIDA – hes from serbia and he’l fucking kill ya

    Wish Balloteli had the guts to follow up with Vida on the field .. would have been fun to see the little wanker floored by Vidic

    Great choice as club captain and embodies the fighting spirit of the club

  23. RedDevil4Lyfe says:

    tho i must say it was awesomely fun when we had Gary Nevs as captain cause he kept taking the piss outta the scousers lol

  24. Nesh Eric says:

    Vida will fuckin murder u,.. I always think he some KGB undercover agent playing football as a cover….he might have had something to do with that Kosovo dude(Milosevic) being brought to justice!

  25. DoggiRed says:

    I liked it when He tackled Baluteli , Baluteli jumped like a spring to show a little display of took baluteli just one second to see who tackled him and back away
