Ex Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic has announced his retirement. This decision to retire was stemmed from the Serbian defender being released by Inter Milan.
The Serbian defender jump started his senior career at Red Star Belgrade before spending eight years at Old Trafford. With Manchester United,under Sir Alex Ferguson, the center-back won five Premier League titles, 3 League Cups and the Champions League.
After Ferguson decided to give up his post as Manchester United most successful manager, Vidic decided to leave the club shortly after to join the Italian club in 2014.
Vidic made 28 appearances for Inter, however, and failed to make a single appearance in 2015-16, with hernia and back injuries leading to his contract being rescinded last week.
These injuries forced the Serbian baller to announce retirement after 16 years.
In a statement released via the United website, Vidic said: “The time has come for me to hang up my boots. The injuries I have had in the last few years have taken their toll.
“I would like to thank all the players I have played with, all the managers and staff I have worked with, and say a big ‘thank you’ to the fans for their support over the years.”
