Vidic Retirement

The gossip that spread yesterday relating to an impending retirement from international football of Nemanja Vidic, is now confirmed as being true.

The man himself is quoted in the morning press as having remarked,

"It`s time for a change of generations and for some older players to say goodbye to the Serbian jersey."

So, after 56 caps, Vidic will finish his career knowing that his final memory will be of a missed penalty, against Slovenia, in his last match something he also spoke about, further commenting,

"I`m aware of the consequences of a poorly executed penalty."

"If I had scored, the game would have taken an entirely different course."

I wonder if he`ll have any regrets somewhere down the line!

Knowing Vidic this decision wasn't taken without some serious thought. It's the best thing for his club career but the worst thing for his country.

Not really the worst thing for Serbia..they do have players capable of playing there..yes the colossus will be tough act to follow..but in Ivanovic, Subotic and Rajkovic they have it covered...if this news had come sooner, chelsea would've never let Rajkovic leave...he could've earned a work permit with increased playing time
