Nemanja Vidic took his time to settle in with United, adjusting to life in England as much as playing on the pitch. He quickly won the fans over though with his tough attitude and brave approach to the game, with a chant created for him not long in to his United career.

Comments circulated a few months ago, which Vidic tried to distance himself from, claiming that he wasn’t happy in Manchester. He today moved to deny these rumours, claiming that his improved English and increase in friends have helped him settle in.

“I definitely feel settled here,” said Vidic. “It is unnerving for everyone when they move clubs. When I joined Red Star Belgrade as a young player it was two hours away by car. It felt like the end of the world and at first it was very hard. It was the same when I came to Manchester United. But you get used to it. I have more friends and I am used to the language. I really feel at home now.”
