Manchester United's outgoing skipper Nemanja Vidic has hailed former boss Sir Alex Ferguson "as the greatest manager ever."

The 32-year-old, who leaves the club at the end of this season after a successful eight-year spell, thinks signing for the Red Devils in 2006 was the best decision he has made in his life.

Widely considered as one of the best defenders in the Premier League era, the Serbian's partnership with team-mate Rio Ferdinand, under Ferguson, made them famous around the world.

"I've been playing for the greatest manager ever, I believe", Vidic told United Review.


"It was a great experience.

"As I said once before, this is going to be the best part of my career, these years with United."

As the defender prepares to play his last match at Old Trafford, he is visibly emotional about the occasion and adds that it is going to be a sad thing for him to bid adieu to the club he loves most.

"You never know what is going to happen with your emotions.

"You can try to predict but I wasn't emotional before and I haven't cried yet!

"We will see what happens after the last game. It is going to be sad", Vidic added.
