Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic says he feels blessed to have played for the club as they head towards their 20th league title.

The 31-year-old joined the Old Trafford outfit in January 2006, and has gone on to win four Premier League titles, four League Cups and one Champions League crown.

"It's brought me huge enjoyment and the opportunity to express myself on what is probably the biggest stage in football," Vidic told Inside United.

"I feel blessed to play for this club and I learn things every day. I've been at United for seven-and-a-half years... I can't deny I feel something very special."

25/1 Vidic is 25/1 to open the scoring against Manchester City with Coral
United hold a 15-point lead over local rivals Manchester City in the English top flight and the Serbian says his team deserve recognition for their form.

"This is a great achievement," he added. "If you have those stats you cannot argue.

"I think we've played well this year, we've scored many goals. Okay maybe we can improve certain things, but if you look at the team performance this year I think it is better than any other season.

"We've used so many players this season. So many players have a role to play, so credit to everyone.

"We are determined to win the trophies. We care about style too, but I think it is most important to think game by game.

"We keep saying that, but it is the way we do it."
