Return of the captain after injury to Manchester United meant also the return of the trophy to the red part of Manchester. The last game of legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson and the 2:1 victory over Swansea was under the captain leadership by the Serb.
Instead of lifting the Barclays Premier League trophy together with Patrice Evra, who replaced him at captain position while he was injured, Vidic decided to show respect to the Scott whose departing from United’s bench was yesterday followed by half of the world.
Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic was handed the silverware but he passed it on to Ferguson who gleefully held it aloft.
“I think it is a special day,” Vidic said. “In one way we are happy to get the trophy but in another we are sad the manager is not here another year.”
Another detail with Nemanja marked the match. Head defense from the grass showed that United’s captain should be regarded seriously even when he’s laying on the ground.
