Nemanja Vidić ( , -shně̞maɲa v̞ǐːditɕsr ; born 21 October 1981) is a Serbian footballer who captains English Premier League club Manchester United and plays for the Serbian national team.

After establishing himself at Red Star Belgrade during the early 2000s, Vidić moved to Spartak Moscow in the summer of 2004. He further increased his reputation when he was part of the "Famous Four" Serbian national team defence that conceded just one goal during the 2006 FIFA World Cup qualification campaign. He would later sign for Man United for around £7m in January 2006 before establishing a prominent defensive partnership with Rio Ferdinand the following season and earning a reputation for his no-nonsense defending.

He has collected a host of honours in his United career including 3 consecutive Premier League titles (4 titles in total), the UEFA Champions League, the FIFA World Club Cup, three League Cup medals, as well as being included in three consecutive PFA Team of the Year sides from 2007 to 2009. In the 2008 09 season, he helped United to a record-breaking run of 14 consecutive clean sheets and was awarded the Barclays Player of the Season. He also collected both the club's Fans' and Players' Player of the Year awards. At the start of the 2010 11 season Vidić was selected as the new team captain of Manchester United. He collected his second Barclays Player of the Season in 2010-11.
