Vidic bids farewell

Nemanja Vidic, the man described as Manchester United's "rock" for the last eight-and-a-half years, will wave goodbye to Old Trafford tonight.

With so much attention being placed on the expected appointment of Holland coach Louis van Gaal this week, the fact that tonight's game against Hull will be Vidic's last at Old Trafford seems to have passed by most.

Vidic confirmed in March that he would leave United to join Inter Milan at the season's end.

The Serb has been a fans' favourite at the club since he moved to England from Spartak Moscow for £7million on Christmas Day, 2005.

Vidic will take five Premier League winner's medals with him to Italy, as well as the one he gained for helping United lift the Champions League in 2008.

Although Vidic has not been the same player since rupturing cruciate ligaments in 2011, he is still highly-regarded by fans, players and the coaching staff.
