Today, Manchester United Serbian defender Nemanja Vidic has denied reports from a Russian magazine that suggested He is unhappy with the English lifestyle and weather in the North West. Vidic performed an interview with Russian football magazine Football Weekly, which hit the English press Today morning.
The central defender purportedly said: “In Manchester the main attraction is a timetable at the railway station where trains leave for less rainy cities!
“In England people don’t have time to feel the joy of life. Throughout the week they work so hard. They only talk to people at lunch. Then in the evening they watch TV so they can get up early for work the next day.”
But today afternoon, Vidic told the official Manchester United site that although he expressed the difficulty he had in the start of his career with United, He is totally happy with life at Old Trafford and he has no plan to leave the current Premier League and Champions League champion in near future.
“I’d like to clarify that I did not make these particular remarks. I spoke about the difficulty I had settling in to life in Manchester, but that does not reflect how I feel now.
“I enjoy my life very much as a footballer at Manchester United and I’m very happy to be a part of this great club. I think I show that in the way I play every week. I also have far too much respect for the people of Manchester, and England, to criticize them in this way.”
Meanwhile, Rio Ferdinand has shown today his future plan to be a manager after he hangs his boot. Rio said that he can follow his current boss Sir Alex Ferguson and he could join the list of ex-Manchester United players who are currently managing clubs in England and Scotland like Mark Hughes, Steve Bruce and Paul Ince in the English Premier league and Gordon Strachan who is currently managing Glasgow Celtic.
As I get older, management seems the direction that I’d like to see myself in.”
Can Ferdinand be a good manager in future?
