Synopsis

Born in Titovo uA ice, Serbia, in 1981, Nemanja began playing football at the age of just seven and was quickly spotted by local clubs. At the age of 15, he was signed to Red Star Belgrade's youth system and by the age of 20 had won the Yugoslav Cup with Red Star. The captain's armband soon followed and he became an integral part of the Red Star team, leading them to a domestic double in 2004. That was to be his last season with the club, as he moved to the Russian Premier League and Spartak Moscow in a reportedly record-breaking transfer deal. His outstanding play and no-nonsense style soon attracted the attention of foreign clubs and in2006 he signed for Manchester united - two years after the club had first expressed an interest in him. Slotting neatly into central defence alongside Rio Ferdinand, Vidia began a defensive partnership that has proved to be one of the most formidable in English football. Establishing himself as a vital part of the United setup, Vidia picked up a Premier League winner's medal in 2007 and another in 2008, and he was part of the squad that won the 2008 Champions League.

He played in every one of United's record-breaking run of 14 clean sheets in 2008/9 and helped the team to victory in the Club World Cup, before finishing the season with more Premier League glory as United won their 18th League title. Loved by the Old Trafford faithful for his aggressive defensive style, and his ability to score goals from set pieces, Vidia was shortlisted for the PFA Player of the Year in 2009 and was named Manchester United fans' and players' Player of the Year. This is the incredible story of a player renowned as one of the best defenders in Europe, if not the world.
