Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic has been left 'angry and mad' by the way in which the club have dealt with his contract situation, according to compatriot and friend Mateja Kezman.

Vidic's deal expires at the end of the season and, in the early hours of Friday morning, the centre-back announced through the official club website that he would leave for pastures new in the summer.

Speculation about Vidic's future at Old Trafford has been rife for a number of months given the uncertainty regarding a new deal and, suggests Kezman, the Serbian would have considered staying with Manchester United had their approach been different.

The Premier League champions left it too late to begin discussions with Vidic about potentially extending his illustrious stay with Manchester United and, by that point, it would appear he had already made his mind up.

"They waited too long to talk about a new contract. They didn’t find the time and they finally made it and it made him a little bit angry and mad," Kezman told talkSPORT.

"He deserved better from the club, they had to talk to him a few months ago not wait until the last days. So I think he’ll be angry because he doesn’t have time to waste anymore."

Vidic, 32, has been a Manchester United player for nine years, during which time he has made 447 appearances and won five Premier League titles, as well as the Champions League in 2008.
