Manchester Untied crowd favourite Nemanja Vidic will come out of retirement to play alongside Michael Carrick in the midfielder’s testimonial match in July this year.

Vidic, 35, will break his promise to never step on the grass again following his retirement in 2016 because he says he couldn’t resist the temptation to play alongside his ‘intelligent and selfless’ ex-teammate.

“I had said I wouldn’t play football at all but when he called me I couldn’t refuse.” Vidic told

“I don’t know how long he wants to play football for but I wish him all the best for his future career and his future plans. We came to United at similar time – he came six months after me so we were together for eight years.

“He has the kind of character which means he doesn’t put himself before the group, he’s very professional. He has all the qualities that every manager and footballer would like to be around.

“I’m glad for him to have this night, he deserves it and I’m glad for him to have achieved what he’s achieved in his career.  I think the players and others in football appreciate him a lot.

“When I think about winning and creating a good team, you need to have certain players and Michael is one of those players you have to have in your team to be able to have a good group.”

Vidic will be reunited with Carrick and other stars from the triple-winning 2008 squad. Their team will be managed by none other than Sir Alex Ferguson.
