Vidic Retires 10 Years After Debut?

Following Serbia’s defeat against Slovenia, Nemanja Vidic spoke to journalists about his future. Whilst no official statement has been released, it appears as though Vidic has decided to call it a day on his International career.

There is the possibility that these comments were made in the heat of the moment, with our captain bitterley disappointed about the result. Serbia needed just one goal to qualify for Euro 2012 and the fact Vidic missed a penalty yesterday rubs salt in the wounds.

“I really don’t know,” he said. “But if you want me to say that, then I can say it – yes, this was my last game. It’s time for a change of generations, and for some older players to say goodbye to Serbian kit.”

Vidic represented Yugoslavia at youth level, playing all the way up through to U-21 level, before representing Serbia and Montenegro in qualifying for Euro 2004. He made his debut against Italy on October 12th 2002 and went on to play 57 games for his country.

His retirement from International football would obviously be a great thing for United, given that he is still only 29-years-old. Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs have enjoyed longer careers with the club after retiring from representing their countries and it would be great to get more years out of Vidic.
