Manchester United legend Nemanja Vidic has released a statement to announcing his retirement from football.

The former Reds captain, who recently left Inter Milan, has decided to call time on his career at the age of 34. He played for United for eight years from January 2006 to May 2014, helping the club to win five Premier League titles, three League Cups, the Champions League and the Club World Cup.

“The time has come for me to hang up my boots,” said Vidic. “The injuries I have had in the last few years have taken their toll.

“I would like to thank all the players I have played with, all the managers and staff I have worked with, and say a big ‘thank you’ to the fans for their support over the years.”
