Old Trafford star set for World Cup stage.
When Nemanja Vidic arrived at Old Trafford many would have wondered at the wisdom of paying £7m for a centre back who hadn’t played in one of the big leagues and wasn’t a household name. Many would have assumed he would be a bit part player at best and no one could have expected the Serbian to make such a swift impact at the club.
The 28 year old is now arguably one of the most crucial players at the club and perhaps the best defender in the Premier League and now he will get to prove his worth with his national team in South Africa after a marvelous qualifying campaign where his Serbian national team surprised a lot of people as they finished above France in what was a tricky group.
Expect Vidic to marshal the back line with maturity and don’t bet against Radomir Anti? guiding Serbia through their group of death and towards the latter stages of the competition.
