MOST COMMENTED

Departing Manchester United center-back Nemanja Vidic gave his account of Manchester United’s turbulent 2013/14 season, revealing that former coach David Moyes, who was fired in April, was not solely to blame as the players argued amongst themselves more than during any other year in his career at Old Trafford.

In an interview with The Telegraph, the Serbia international noted that Moyes saw the game “in a different way,” which proved to be a difficult transition for the players. "[Interim manager] Ryan Giggs shares the same ideas as [retired former boss] Sir Alex Ferguson and has a more similar approach to the one we had with Sir Alex. The players are more than used to it and felt more comfortable with it. I am not saying that the David Moyes way was bad but these players feel more comfortable playing a certain way of football.” He added: “There is no point speaking about someone who was here, who everyone knows lost his job because he did not succeed in doing what he wanted to achieve.”

In the end, United finished 22 points behind rival Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table, and failed to qualify for either the UEFA Champions League or Europa League. The Inter Milan-bound defender said that between the players, "It has been hard. We argued amongst ourselves. This year more than any other, because when you have bad times people show they care. We were arguing to get better. We wanted to improve.”
