Tonight is Nemanja Vidic’s last game as Manchester United captain at Old Trafford, but he hopes he manages not to cry.
“You never know what is going to happen with your emotions,” Vidic told United Review. “You can try to predict but I wasn’t emotional before and I haven’t cried yet! We will see what happens after the last game. It is going to be sad. As we didn’t do well this season, that walk around Old Trafford won’t be the same after many years where we have always been celebrating something after the final game. Now, it has become a chance to thank the fans for supporting us this year. I think this is definitely the least that we can do. We must perform in these last games to give them something to look forward to next season and to believe this team can win again. That is what the players are thinking about now – to try to put on good performances and build on that next season.”
Vidic also had a message for the fans.
“Thank you for all the support you have given me over the years,” he said. “I know I will be supporting the club in the future. Hopefully we can win as many trophies as we did in my eight years over the next eight years.”
