Man Utd will miss influence of Inter Milan-bound Vidic – Berg

Former Manchester United defender Henning Berg believes the club will sorely miss the influence of Nemanja Vidic.

Former Manchester United defender Henning Berg believes the club will sorely miss the influence of Nemanja Vidic.

The Serbian centre-back is set to depart Old Trafford this summer to join Italian outfit Inter Milan on a free transfer after the Nerazzurri confirmed on Wednesday morning that they had agreed a deal.

Vidic will leave United after eight-and-a-half-years having won five Premier League titles, a Champions League trophy, a FIFA Club World Cup and three Football League cups and Berg suggests he will be a great loss.

"He's still vital to the club so I don't think it's a football decision," Berg told Sky Sports News Radio.

"He's been there for a long time now, so I think it's simply down to the player wanting to do something different.

"He's a fantastic leader and a top player – one of the best central defenders that they've had – and I'm sure he'd like to go out on a high note."
