The former defender confessed that he was carried away by the first impression and that later both became great friends.
Rio Ferdinand always talks about Manchester United. And when he does, he gives off very fine praise or harsh criticism. But this time he had to retract and not precisely because of something of the present time of the Red Devils, but of the past and of what at the time he said and had to retract.
“I am honest and I have to accept that when Nemanja Vidic arrived at United I thought it was a mistake. But with the passage of time it was demonstrating its quality and we made a great couple of centrals, ”he said.
He also added “With Rooney we did not know why they had signed Vidic having other quality men on the team. The parties and he himself would show us how wrong we were. ”
Vidic improved a lot from the hand of Sir Alex Ferguson and became a great friend of Ferdinand, also of Rooney. “The guy kept him in the gym, he stayed longer in training, he was a machine. And he kept us all quiet, especially me. “
