Nemanja Vidic insists that even when not playing he feels the pain of defeat because he is proud of his club.

“I can’t stand to lose because it is not good for our title challenge and because I don’t like to lose any game,” said Vidic. “Losing feels the same as being punched on the face. I am not good to be around. I might not have been playing at Fulham 3-0 just before Christmas but losing still hurt because I am a Manchester United player and I am proud of my club.”
