Robin van Persie is disappointed Nemanja Vidic has left Manchester United.

The former club captain is moving to Inter Milan on a Bosman this summer.

"When I think of him as a footballer, Nemanja puts his head where other players are scared to put their feet," he said.

"I see him diving sometimes to block a ball and when I'm witnessing that I'm scared for him, scared that something bad happens to him. But, this is Nemanja... unbelievable!

"'The way he defends, the way he lives his life is incredible. I will miss him, Manchester United will miss him but Inter Milan can feel very lucky to have him for the next few years."
