​Ex-Man Utd defender Vidic hangs up his boots

Former Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic has announced his retirement from professional football.

The 34 year old Serb says injuries have forced his retirement.

Vidic left Inter Milan by mutual consent at the beginning of January after failing to make an appearance for the Serie A side this season.

"The time has come for me to hang up my boots," he told ManUtd.com.

"The injuries I have had in the last few years have taken their toll.

"I would like to thank all the players I have played with, all the managers and staff I have worked with, and say a big 'thank you' to the fans for their support over the years."
