Former Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic eager to follow in Ferguson's footsteps

Former Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic is keen to follow in the footsteps of his former boss Alex Ferguson and become a "real manager".

Vidic played under Ferguson for more than seven years at United, helping the club win five Premier League titles, one Champions League trophy and several cup competitions, before the Serbian moved to Italy's Inter Milan in 2014.

Ferguson is United's most successful manager, winning 38 trophies in more than 26 years at Old Trafford before retiring at the end of the 2012/13 season.

Vidic, who retired from playing in 2016, believes that the current game is dictated by the players rather than the managers and club officials.

With rivals Manchester City favourites to win the Premier League title this campaign, Vidic backed United to reach the final stages of the Champions League and get a confidence boost for next season.
