Nemanja Vidic has pulled down the curtain on his decorated career, after confirming his retirement following his exit from Inter Milan.

Vidic was one of the best January transfer window signings after he moved from Spartak Moscow in January 2006 and went in to win five Premier League titles and a Champions League crown with the Old Trafford giants.

He left to join Inter Milan in the summer of 2014, with injuries affecting his form as he struggled to establish himself at the San Siro.

There have been suggestions that he was in talks over a move to Premier League relegation strugglers Aston Villa in recent days, but that suggestion has been brought to a conclusion after it was confirmed he was retiring. 

The 34-year-old man look to start a coaching career, with his record from his time at Old Trafford leaving a lasting legacy:

Premier League title - 2006–07, 2007–08, 2008–09, 2010–11, 2012–13

Champions League - 2008

FIFA Club World Cup - 2008

League Cup - 2005-06, 2008-09, 2009-10
