Vidic answers fans

nice cities with some nice architecture, but the cities I’ve spent time in are Belgrade and sometimes London. I like the opportunities London gives you. It’s the capital and it’s all happening there.

Who was your football idol as a youngster? (Saran Jareevas)
I was a big fan of Red Star Belgrade and we had some great players when I was growing up. The generation that won the European Cup and World Championship were my idols. I’m a defender, but I always looked forward at the attackers. At the time, I remember Parma had some good players. Faustino Asprilla was great at the time. I loved [the Brazilian] Ronaldo, obviously. There are many others too, but they were all forwards.

This interview first appeared in United Review, the official match programme.

Real desire

"It’s not hard to train and do the gym work because I know the benefits and I have a real desire to do well, whether I’m exercising or playing. It’s just frustrating when you look at the players training outside, playing football and being involved in games. That’s what I missed."
