The Serbian international has arrived at San Siro on a three-year contract.
â€śInter are one of the biggest clubs in the world, with great history and tradition,â€ť Vidic said. â€śThere is a new project here and I liked it immediately, I am happy to be here.
â€śI could have come to Italy many years ago, but now I finally have the chance to be here. I donâ€™t think it is a step back in my career.
â€śItalian football is suited to the way I play and, as Iâ€™ve said, Iâ€™m at one of the biggest clubs in Europe.
â€śThe idea is to grow on the pitch, thatâ€™s the mentality. A big club like Inter always has big expectations, we need to be proud of what we have done at the end of the season.
â€śLast year I watched a lot of Inter matches and had the chance to get to know my new team. Iâ€™ve never played in a three-man defence, but the role of a defender remains the same whether you are in a three or four.â€ť
Vidic also revealed that he spoke to compatriot and Inter legend Dejan Stankovic before deciding to make the move to Serie A.
â€śI spoke to Dejan but he is not the only Serb who has worn this shirt. I am pleased to continue this tradition at Inter.â€ť
