Nemanja Vidic: It would be a dream come true to lift silverware as captain of Manchester United

The Serbian defender is eyeing revenge against Barcelona in the Champions League final at Wembley, and reserves praise for striker Wayne Rooney after his return to form
Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic has admitted it would be a dream come true to win the Premier League and Champions League double this season.

The Serbian was handed the armband at the beginning of the campaign and has led his side to the top of the Premier League by six points with four games left to play, and to the Champions League semi-final, in which United secured a 2-0 victory in the first leg away to Schalke.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, Vidic said: "Obviously it's a dream to be the captain, especially at such a big club as Manchester United and lift the trophy. This is the dream of any footballer. To be honest, as a player, I never dreamed I could go that far.

"To play for such a big club and to be the captain is like something that happens in a dream, and I'm enjoying it."

Vidic also admitted that he is looking to rectify United’s 2009 Champions League final defeat to Barcelona.

"Just playing in the final is an incredible feeling. But to lift the trophy at Wembley as United captain would be the pinnacle of my career. It would be a dream come true,” Vidic added to The Sun.

"In a final, you remember the way you lose. You want to play again and win."

The 29-year-old also reserved praise for in-form striker Wayne Rooney, who has put in a series of majestic performances to help his side step up a gear as they come to the tail-end of the season.

"At the moment he's in great form, these last few weeks," he said. "He's had some great performances and scored some great goals.

"If he performs like he has performed over the last few weeks I think we've got a big chance of lifting the trophy this year.

"When he's fit and doesn't have injuries, he's definitely one of the best."
