Video Emerges Showing Nemanja Vidic 'Is A Joker Compared To Virgil Van Dijk'
A compilation of Nemanja Vidic's worst moments in a Manchester United shirt 'proves' he shouldn't be compared to Virgil van Dijk.
United and Liverpool fans constantly compare the two defenders and argue who is the better player.
One Liverpool fan has taken it a step further with a compilation of Vidic's mistakes during his time at Old Trafford.
Check out the video below.

The caption of the tweet is surely designed to irritate United fans, reading: "If you would kindly stop comparing this joker with Virgil van Dijk, it would be appreciated x."
Liverpool fans have reacted to the clip and they have been particularly harsh in their criticism of the Serbian.
He was a glorified Lovren due to play with Rio.

Imagine if VVD would have made that many game changing mistakes against his biggest rivals. Vidic is the equivalent of what Martin Skrtel was for us: A player that would put his neck on the line for his club, and was loved for it, until he made suicidal mistakes that cost us.

I genuinely don't get what people think Vidic was better at?
VVD is faster, he's stronger, he reads the game far better, he's better with the ball at his feet, he's more composed, he doesn't unnecessarily dive into challenges and get sent off every other game...

Vidic isn't comparable to VVD in any attribute at all.

Vidic did have lapses in concentration from time to time but every player makes mistakes at some point in their career.
He won five Premier League titles and a Champions League crown during his eight year spell in England and is still regarded as one of the Premier League's greatest defenders.
One man who used to cause him nightmares is Fernando Torres.
Torres' time at Liverpool saw him run riot against United on a number of occasions, usually at the expense of Vidic.

Van Dijk on the other hand is set to win his first Premier League title this season should the season resume.
He's also a Champions League winner and came second to Lionel Messi in 2019's Ballon d'Or rankings.
Who do you think is the better defender, Nemanja Vidic or Virgil van Dijk?
