Defender insists speculation about him leaving the club was "never correct" and reveals he is honoured to have been handed the captain's armband

Defender Nemanja Vidic is adamant he does not want to leave Manchester United and believes Old Trafford is where he wants to finish his career.

The 29-year-old was handed the captain’s armband at the start of the season after a summer of rumours linking him with a possible move to either Spain or Italy.

The Serbia international also extended his contract at Old Trafford in August for another four years and now insists he has no intention of ever quitting the club.

He told the Sunday Mirror: "I hope to spend the rest of my career here at United."

"I heard the speculation about me maybe leaving last year, but I know where I want to be and I have shown my commitment to the club.

"I have given the best years of my career to this club and the talk about me leaving here was never correct.

"I always give my best. Of course, sometimes you have good and bad days, but I think I always try to give 100 per cent - and especially now I have that armband and the responsibility that goes with it.

"I'm definitely here for the rest of my career now.

"It never came from my mouth that I would be leaving United. I love it here and I think I show that on the pitch."

Vidic also revealed his pride at being made club captain and admitted it was a role he fully enjoyed.

"The boss told me at the start of the season he was giving me the captaincy," he added

"Then after a few games he said that I would be captain for the season, which was great news.

"Being captain of United is a big honour and I am really enjoying the role."
