Nemanja Vidic

Where is Nemanja Vidic now?

Legendary Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic retired from playing in January 2016 after a difficult 18 months in Serie A with Inter Milan where he made just 28 appearances.

He ended his career having made nearly 500 first team appearances for just five clubs – the majority at Old Trafford where he formed a formidable link at the back with Rio Ferdinand.

During his time in Manchester he won five Premier League titles, three League Cups, the FIFA Club World Cup and the Champions League as well as winning the Premier League Player of the Season twice and being named in the Team of the Year on four occasions.

He was also a mainstay for the Serbia national team winning 56 caps and featuring in the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

Upon retiring from playing, Vidic stayed in Milan where his family has settled and says that he is basically a driver for his three boys – driving them to school and football training.

He does however occasionally represent former side Manchester United in an ambassadorial role.

In July 2018, Vidic completed the FA Level 5 (UEFA Pro) in Coaching Football course and has expressed a desire to coach professionally but wants to learn from someone for a couple of years first.
