Nemanja Vidic says he feels “blessed” to play for Manchester United as he aims to help the Red Devils win their 20th top-flight title this season.

United have seen their bids for Champions League and FA Cup glory ended early following defeats by Real Madrid and Chelsea.

But the 31-year-old defender, who moved to Old Trafford from Spartak Moscow back in January 2006, is still relishing playing on the “biggest stage in football” as Sir Alex Ferguson’s men look to consolidate their 15-point lead at the top of the Premier League table.

“It’s brought me huge enjoyment and the opportunity to express myself on what’s probably the biggest stage in football,” Vidic told Inside United.

“I feel blessed to play for this club and I learn things every day. I’ve been at United for seven-and-a-half years… I can’t deny I feel something very special.”

Vidic has been limited to just 19 appearances in all competitions this season due to a knee injury, but has scored 18 goals in 260 games for the Red Devils since joining the club.
