Whilst United beat West Ham in the replay of the FA Cup 3rd round last week, Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic still holds the Champions League and Premier League as the most important trophies.
“Champions League is really important” he said. “The Premier League, especially in the last few years we can see how much English football has grown and how many quality players we have in this league as it is difficult to win. Those two trophies are big trophies and difficult to win.”
Vidic has won both competitions in his time at United but this season we will have to beat Spanish champions Real Madrid if we are to progress to the quarter-finals.
“It’s a tough draw, two clubs with tradition and quality,” he said. “It will be a tough game. Madrid isn’t doing well at the moment in La Liga but this is their chance to prove they’re a good team. We are looking forward to having a better end than last year when we went out after the group stage. We have a good motive to play well and win the game. I think it will be great for our fans.”
