Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic says he is honoured to captain the club to their record 19th league title.

The Serbian centre back was named skipper until the end of the current season following Rio Ferdinand's injury problems and Gary Neville's retirement.

And the top stopper is delighted his side have beaten Liverpool's long standing league record and says United can get even better.

"It is a great honour for me to be the captain of such a big club," he said.


"I was very proud when I was given the captaincy and I am enjoying the role. But at the end of the day if you are captain and you don't win a trophy, it is not a great feeling. I am very glad we won it.

"It is such an important trophy for us this year. It was one of our main targets to win the Premier League and go above Liverpool. But this is not going to stop. We want to improve and get better.

"I arrived here in 2005 and every year has been getting better and better. It is just amazing.

"I have been here five years now and four times we have won the Premier League and have played in the Champions League final three times. It really is a dream. To be part of this team and this club is amazing."
