Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic was quick to thank the club’s fans after playing his final game at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.

The Serbian managed to bow out with a win, with the Red Devils proving too much for Hull. A brace from debutant James Wilson and a goal from Robin Van Persie gave United a 3-1 win over Steve Bruce’s men.

Vidic will end his nine-season spell with the club at the end of the season as he prepares to join Serie A giants Inter Milan.

The centre-half has won five Premier League titles during his time at Old Trafford and he admitted after the game that it was hard to leave.

He told Sky Sports: “It was hard in many ways – first because it was my last game at Old Trafford, as well we didn’t have a great year. I think it is the first year in my eight years that we didn’t celebrate a trophy, which is hard.

“It was a tough season and we had a tough game at Old Trafford. It was very emotional.

“I have to say that my heart will always be at this club. I have spent so many years here. I have been part of this good time at United and worked with so many great people. I will always be here and always watch United.

“I want to say a big thank you from the bottom of my heart. The fans have been fantastic to me from the first day and it was a pleasure to play for them.”

Vidic will look to bow out on Sunday in his final appearance for the club with a win, and United can be backed at odds of 2.20 on a handicap of -0,-0.5 when they take on Southampton.
