Jenna also told us of her pride at having seen two Nemanjas represent United...

I started supporting United nine years ago and now I’m 17. I enjoy watching the team playing. The reason I started watching football is Nemanja Vidic. He is my biggest idol. He always gave 120 per cent in every game. No defender could replace him. I’m so proud he is from my country and it is a pleasure to know a Serbian guy achieved great things. He represented our country in the best possible way. Now, I’m glad this team has another Nemanja. This time it is Matic, who is doing great for United so far. As you can see, we Serbs are fighters. We won’t ever leave the game without giving everything we could. So, I decided to take a picture of myself in Belgrade, beside the monument of Victor, as a symbol of success, effort and victory.
