Nemanja Vidic eyes one last hurrah against Liverpool

Published Add your comment

Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic says he is eying one last victory over Liverpool before he leaves the club to join Inter Milan.

The Serbian defender announced earlier this year that he would be calling time on his career at Old Trafford at the end of the current campaign before agreeing a switch to Italy.

Vidic has been a mainstay of Manchester United's defence since he joined the club back in 2006.

The 32-year-old has enjoyed plenty of success against Liverpool over the years, and scored the winner against Brendan Rodgers' side last January.

He's also had some dark days against Manchester United's fiercest rivals and has been sent off against them on three occasions.

"It's the sort of match you want to be involved in," the defender told United Uncovered.

"Manchester United against Liverpool is not just an English derby, it's worldwide.

"It's not just rivalry between two big clubs, it's between two cities. You feel that on the pitch - the tradition of the two clubs.

"Winning is a great feeling and losing is the worst feeling. But it's being watched all over the world and you want to be part of the show and part of the history."

Vidic is leaving the Red Devils while they are their lowest ebb in the Premier League era. They currently occupy sixth place, and are set to miss out on Champions League qualification - a failure made worse by Liverpool's success this season.

A host of experienced players could leave alongside Vidic - including Patrice Evra and defensive partner Rio Ferdinand.

New boss David Moyes has overseen a difficult campaign to date - but he predicts a bright future for the reigning champions.

"I'm pleased with the young boys," the Manchester United manager said.

"We've had great service from Rio and Vida and we're using them because we need their experience.

"With the amount of games we have coming up we're going to need them to be fit and healthy."
