Nemanja Vidic: United reunion odd
Nemanja Vidic has said it will be strange for him to face former club Manchester United as an Inter Milan player when the two clubs meet in a friendly in the U.S. on Tuesday.
Former Serbia international defender Vidic left Old Trafford to move to the Nerazzurri earlier this summer, joining them on a free transfer.
One of his first appearances for the Serie A club sees him come up against the Red Devils, with whom he spent the past eight seasons, winning five Premier League titles, a Champions League and three League Cups.
"It may only be a friendly and there won't be too much pressure, but it will be a strange feeling playing against my past," he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
"I'm going to see plenty of friends, many of whom I've been in touch with all summer via SMS. I grew up there in every aspect. Manchester United have become the most famous club in the world."

Vidic, 32, who made 300 appearances for United, said he had no regrets about leaving. "There's no point dwelling on the past. It took me just one day to decide [to join Inter] and I'm convinced I made the right choice," he added.
"We know it's not going to be easy because we're in a period of transition, but our objectives are to perform better than last season and qualify for the Champions League."
Inter ended last season in fifth place in Serie A, an improvement of four places on their disappointing 2012-13 campaign.
Club president Erick Thohir, who announced upon his arrival at the club last year that his target was to take them to the Champions League final at the San Siro in 2016, has set the target of a top three place for this campaign.
