Manchester United: Fans celebrate Nemanja Vidic’s birthday as legend turns 38

Manchester United fans were celebrating the birthday of legendary centre-back Nemanja Vidic after the Serbian turned 38-years-old.

Vidic formed part of the defence that proved so successful at Old Trafford after the former Serbia international moved to the club on January 2006 for just £7m (via BBC).

The 38-year-old made exactly 300 appearances for the club during a trophy-laden spell at the north-west club. Vidic lifted 10 trophies in just eight years at the club, including three consecutive Premier League titles.

After such success at the club, former defensive partner Rio Ferdinand labelled the 3-cap former Yugoslavia international as his ‘best defensive partner’ (via The Daily Mail).

Following United’s loss to West Bromwich Albion two seasons ago, Vidic gave an insight into the mentality of the 2007/2008 squad as he revealed manager Sir Alex Ferguson didn’t let them celebrate much (Sky Sports via The Metro).

On his 38th birthday, fans took to Twitter to celebrate the occasion.

Here is a selection of tweets from the Old Trafford faithful:

Manchester United fans, what are your best memories of Vidic? Let us know!
