Vidic feels Sir Alex's human qualities are on a par with his managerial skills and it is clear he will miss the long-serving boss.
"It was a real pleasure to play for the manager," he stated. "It's always difficult to talk about him as he was my manager!
"Now I can express myself and have to say he's a great person who always cares about his players and he's always driving them forward. He believes in them and that's why the players always like to play for him. It's a pleasure to play for this club and for this manager."
