SOUTHAMPTON, ENGLAND – SEPTEMBER 02: Jose Fonte of Southampton battles with Nemanja Vidic of Manchester United during the Barclays Premier League match between Southampton and Manchestrer United at St Mary’s Stadium on September 2, 2012 in Southampton, England.

A statue of Sir Alex Ferguson was revealed yesterday commemorating his reign as Manchester United manager, one that’s spanned over 25 years long. At 70 years old it’s fair to suggest that Fergie is one of the most experienced men in football that’s still alive and, according to Nemanja Vidic, the gaffer’s experience still teaches players something new every day. Vidic is highly regarded as one of the best centre backs in the world, but the Serbian centre back admits that even he learns new stuff from the Scot on a daily basis.

Vidic, who’s been at the club since 2006, said:

“You learn something new from him every day – I have learnt a lot from him, not just as a footballer but in life in general. He gives all the players great confidence and belief, and he does all he can to get the best out of his players. I think this is his biggest strength. He has faith in us and he trusts us and I’m really glad I have been able to spend nearly seven years working with him. He is a winner.”
