Nemanja Vidic has revealed how proud he is to be named Manchester United captain, but insists he is working as hard for the team now as he always has done.

“I feel very proud,” said Vidic. “It came as a bit of a surprise but I am enjoying the role. You have to think about your responsibilities – your behaviour, the way you play, the way you train. I know that I need to set a good example on and off the pitch. In terms of my game I do not think anything has changed. I’ve always talked a lot on the pitch. You have to communicate as a defender and organise things whether you are captain or not. I tend not to think about it (the captaincy) when I’m playing. I am just focused on doing my best for the team as I have always done.”
