Vidic: Choice out of circumstances

Inter-bound Nemanja Vidic has indicated that there are no regrets in choosing to leave Manchester United.

The Serbian international agreed to a summer Bosman move to the Nerazzurri back in January, but has faced the suggestion that his departure was linked to David Moyes’ presence at Old Trafford.

With the Scot having since been fired, the departing United captain was asked if he harboured any regrets.

“I know you would like me to say the exact thing but I cannot,” Vidic responded in an interview released today by the BBC.

“You don't make a decision like that all of a sudden. I made it because of circumstances.

“People said we lost faith in David Moyes. We didn't. We knew he was trying to find new players. We knew he was trying to build something.

“Once we lost the chance to win the title we knew this season was lost. Then it is like resetting a computer and starting again. You want to see lights for the next season.

“Did the players disagree with Moyes over tactics? The captain has to respect the club. You will never hear from me that he did this badly or that badly.

“Sometimes you need to have honest conversations. But only when he asked me what I thought and only about something which could help him improve, maybe in his relations with the players. Never about tactics.

“It is not the players’ job - not even the captain - to tell the manager he should play this way or that.”

Vidic was asked if he is totally fit: “Totally, and capable of playing two games a week.”
