2. Nemanja Vidic

Nemanja Vidic will walk away from the Premier League this summer with his status as one of English football’s greatest central defenders secured.

The Serbian, who has been a talismanic captain for Manchester United over the years, has won a multitude of titles during his eight-year spell at Old Trafford, including five Premier League winners’ medals and, of course, the 2008 Champions League.

Vidic was - and still is - as tough and as brave as defenders come, and the Red Devils will miss him. Sorely.
