After missing out on the PFA and Footbal Writers awards this season, Nemanja Vidic was last night awarded with the United fans’ and players’ player of the season 08/09.
However, Vidic hasn’t claimed too many individual honours, which he claims was obvious by the speech he made when accepting the awards.
“I am honoured,” Vidic said. “It is amazing to win these awards, especially when I consider the quality of the players I play alongside every day. I would like to say thank you to the fans and to my team-mates. I enjoy being here every day and playing with these players and working with the coaches. I’m very happy here at United. It’s a great night for me. It has been a really good year. I am surprised I got it but I have really enjoyed it. To be honest I don’t have so many individual awards. That’s why I am a bit confused and my speech is not the best. Next time my speech will be a bit better.”
