Nemanja Vidic retires instead of joining D.C. United

      News broke this morning that Serbian international and former Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic was retiring from professional football.  This comes after recent rumors linking the centerback with a move to Major League Soccer, with the defender being assigned to D.C. United.

When asked recently about a possible move to D.C., Vidic had a puzzled look on his face and responded that his agent was currently going over details as "United were interested in bringing him back."  

Confused, the writer inquiring about his status proceeded to show the D.C. United crest and roster to Vidic who then, upon seeing names such as Espindola and Doyle, responded stoically, "I am retiring."

We in the ILF respect Nemanja's decision and extend an open invitation for him to buy us a round of shots at Lizzy's when he finds himself here on holiday.
