Manchester United skipper Nemanja Vidic has set his sights on a hatful of trophies at Old Trafford this season.

The Serbian international, who led the Red Devils to the title after taking the reigns from Rio Ferdinand last season, has already raised a piece of silverware this term after the side's emphatic second half turnaround against Manchester City in the FA Community Shield last weekend.

Vidic doesn't expect that to be the last trophy placed in the cabinet at Old Trafford, and it's the FA Cup which appeals most to the 29-year-old, the only major trophy to elude him in England thus far.

"I want to win the trophies again, the Premier League, the Champions League - these are the two main ones, but I would like to win the FA Cup as well. There are high expectations always," the central defender told CNN World Sport.

"If you want to play for United you have to win everything! You have to be successful, otherwise, new players come and you have to fight for your place.

"I still have hunger to play, hunger to win the trophies, and I’m really happy. As long as I think like that, I will be good, but I would really like to win the FA Cup as well.

"I haven’t won the FA Cup yet, this is the trophy I really want to win."


On the eve of the opening day of the Barclays Premier League season, Vidic also discussed United's title rivals ahead of heavily-anticipated season in England.

The Serb struggles to see past Chelsea as the main contenders to Sir Alex Ferguson and his side's crown, although City are also in the mind of the defender.

"Chelsea is always there because of experience. They have players who have been playing a few years together, and they know each other very well and they will be hungry to win the title yet again," he continued.

"[Manchester] City they have a few signings, and I think they will be even stronger this year, especially because they play one year together, and I think they will be our bigger rivals. But, we will see, we will see.

"I’m just hoping we are going to reach our form from the beginning of the season, because we have a tough schedule. We have really tough games in the first few weeks, if you perform the best, we can, I believe, we can win the title again."
