Vidic won his first silverware in the role last month when United beat Chelsea in the Community Shield at Wembley and on Saturday, the 29-year-old kept the job even though Ryan Giggs started the victory against West Ham at Old Trafford.
It is testament to the performances Vidic has produced since his £7million switch from Spartak Moscow four-and-a-half years ago.
And even though he is not taking the accolade that seriously, he is enjoying the experience.
"It is a big achievement for me," he said. "No-one is going to say they don't want to be the captain of Manchester United and I am very happy with it.
"It is a major responsibility but I have always liked responsibility.
"I am not a player who shies away from it. Nothing has really changed in that respect."
