Vidic proud leading Man Utd to title triumph in first season as skipper

Manchester United skipper Nemanja Vidic is proud to be winning the title in his first season as captain.

Vidic stands on the threshold of having his picture adorning the walls of Carrington and Old Trafford as a league title winning skipper.

"It is great to be the captain of such a big club like United. To lift the trophy would be even bigger," he told the Manchester Evening News. "At United, it is all about success and if you don't win the trophies it is not that exciting to be captain.

"Every trophy is so special. The first title I won in 2007 was the first time United had won the league in three or four years and that was very exciting. It was a first for me and the club got the league back. It was a great time. But this is a big achievement this year.

"I never dreamed of being captain at the club when I arrived. I never expected it. My target on arrival was just to play week in and week out.

"My mentality was to win the trophies as well but I never targeted the idea of me being first up to receive it. To be close to doing that is just amazing."
