Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic has confirmed that he will be leaving the club at the end of the 2013/14 season.
The Serbian released a statement this morning through Manchester United’s Official website stating that he would indeed be leaving at the end of his current contract, after eight-years at Old Trafford.
In the statement released, Vidic said:
“I never could have imagined winning 15 trophies and I will certainly never forget that fantastic night in Moscow, memories that will live with me and the fans forever. However, I have decided that I will move on at the end of this season. I want to challenge myself again and try to make the best of myself in the coming years.
“I’m not considering staying in England as the only club I ever wanted to play for here is Manchester United and I was lucky enough to be part of this club for so many years. I’ve got a few options to move on and I will choose the right one for me and for my family.
“I am now going to focus all my efforts on playing for Manchester United and do the best I can for the team until the end of the season. I hope this stops any further speculation about my future.”
Good luck to Nemanja Vidic in whatever he decides to do in the future, been a great servant for Manchester United.
Vidic is the first of, what we feel will be many to leave the club in the summer. With Patrice Evra (Monaco) Rio Ferdinand (Media/Hats) Ryan Giggs (Coaching) and Luis Nani (Italy) likely to be on that list.
