Nemanja Vidic faced his former club for the first time this week when Manchester United played Inter Milan in a pre-season friendly. United won the game on penalties and Vidic found it strange playing against the likes of Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata.
“It was strange,” he admitted. “I faced Wayne and Mata many times in training but it’s different when you play them in a proper match. But, in a way, I am glad I saw them. They are all happy as well, which I am glad to see. They look like they are enjoying it. It was a good day.”
Vidic, like many other players at the club, wasn’t happy with David Moyes last season. However, with so much change under new manager Louis van Gaal, Vidic still believes the time was right for him to move on.
“I don’t have any regrets,” he continued. “That’s in the past now. I have answered so many questions about it. I think the club is going through transition – United is and so is Inter. I can just speak about what is happening now. What is past is past. What I must do now is look to the future, the same as Man United have to do. I am a fan of Manchester United and I hope both teams do well this year.”
