The solid Nemanja Vidić

During the late decade of the 2000s and the early 2010s Manchester United had one of the most solid defenses in the English Premier League. The website can be visited at any moment in order to place wagers on the Red Devils.

This solidity was in part thanks to the two center backs that Sir Alex Ferguson had at his disposal. Of course, we are talking about Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidić. For example, the Serbian is one among three players to be chosen as the Premier League Player of the Season on two separate occasions.

The other players to obtain those awards were Thierry Henry and Cristiano Ronaldo. This by itself speaks a lot about Vidić’s quality. The 1xBet website offers multiple wagering opportunities on the best players from the English Premier League.

Beginnings of an excellent career

Nemanja Vidić played professionally between 2000 and 2016. He began his career in Red Star Belgrade, where he spent a total of four seasons. The bookmaker company 1xBet sports live features the opportunity to place live wagers on all the matches of the Serbian League.

In 2004, the Serbian departed his country in order to join Spartak Moscow, where he played until 2006. He also had some excellent performances with his national squad in the qualifiers for the 2006 FIFA World Cup. After those instances, Manchester United decided to approach the great defender. As it would be seen many years later, United made a fantastic choice by deciding to sign the Serbian.

Vidić not only established himself as an extremely solid defender on the Red Devils, where he partnered with Rio Ferdinand. He also became the captain of the squad between the 2010-11 and 2013-14 seasons. The 1xBet live section of the bookmaker sports company offers great chances to bet live on the English Premier League.

The Famous Four

The qualifiers for the 2006 FIFA World Cup were a fantastic moment where Vidić really showed how great of a defender he was. Whenever teams are battling for qualifying for a World Cup, it is possible to wager on them at the website.

Representing the team of Serbia and Montenegro, Vidić was part of a fantastic defensive line. They only conceded one goal during the entire qualification process. The other players that created this defensive wall were:

  • Mladen Krstajić;
  • Goran Gavrančić;
  • and Ivica Dragutinović.

Unfortunately, it is fair to say that this defensive line collapsed during the 2006 FIFA World Cup. In the three matches that they played during the group phase they conceded 10 goals in total. However, after the tournament, Sir Alex Ferguson still wanted to welcome Vidić into Manchester United. All the editions of the FIFA World Cup can be wagered on the 1xBet platform.
