Nemanja Vidic Decides to Leave Manchester United at End Of Season: Nightly Soccer Report

Manchester United’s number one defender Nemanja Vidic has confirmed that he will leave the club at the end of the season, according to the official Manchester United website.

In a statement issued by the defender, the Serbian said:

“It’s the last year of my contract and I have had eight wonderful years here. My time at this great club will always rank as the best years of my career.

“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.”

Vidic’s decision to leave United will come as a major blow to manager David Moyes. First, it means he’s leaving on a free transfer. Second, Vidic’s decision not to extend his contract at United is definitely a blow to a club like Man United.
