Vidic: Wembley win would be pinnacle

Published Add your comment

Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic believes winning the Champions League at Wembley would be the pinnacle of his career.

The Serbian centre back, made captain at Old Trafford during Rio Ferdinand's spell out through injury, has become an integral part of the Red Devils' core and was once again on fine form against Schalke in midweek.

"We played a very good match but we are not there yet," Vidic told Belgrade daily Sportski Zurnal following the 2-0 win in Germany.

"Just playing in the final is an incredible feeling and to lift the trophy at Wembley as the Manchester United captain would be the pinnacle of my career.

"It would be a dream come true but all I am prepared to do now is take it one step at a time and look ahead to the next match, because we mustn't get carried away."


Vidic has already enjoyed great success with United since joining from Spartak Moscow in 2006, with three Premier League titles and a Champions League winners medal amongst his collection.

With a six point advantage at the top of the table in England, a famous double remains potentially on the cards, but Sir Alex Ferguson's side must maintain their focus if they are to beat Arsenal this weekend and hold off the challenge of Chelsea.

"We are close and it's ours to lose but it's far from over, because we are looking at two difficult matches away to Arsenal and at home to Chelsea, our rivals for the silverware," the Manchester United skipper continued.

"We are very optimistic because we are in good form, we are playing well and several key players have hit top form at just the right time. The manager has plenty of options to choose from, it makes almost no difference who's playing because everyone knows how the system works and that's produced the results.

"In between the games with Arsenal and Chelsea, we have to finish the job against Schalke but we have many players capable of being match-winners so we are confident."
