Nemanja Vidic's Bone-Crunching Challenge On Kyle Walker Is Still The Best In Premier League History

Nemanja Vidic's Bone-Crunching Challenge On Kyle Walker Is Still The Best In Premier League History

Nemanja Vidic's crunching challenge on Kyle Walker still remains one of the most iconic moments in Premier League history.

Manchester United took on Tottenham Hotspur in 2013 and found themselves 2-1 down early in the second half.

Realising the tempo needed to be upped, club captain Vidic decided to smash into Walker out on the wing.

A loose ball bounces to the edge of the box and both players decide to go with it as fast as possible.

Walker is still one of the league's fastest players and reached the ball quicker - but he didn't bargain on Vidic's massive lunge.

The Serbian went to ground and clattered into Walker, who flipped high into the air before crashing down to the White Hart Lane turf.

It was a fair tackle however and it means Vidic could dust himself off and continue the game with no punishment.

Walker did remain grounded for a few seconds however. Anyone would, it is some hit.

Fans have reacted to the challenge and they think it's the kind of defending modern football is lacking.

The tackle has become so synonymous with Vidic's no-nonsense image, he was even asked about it after retiring.

He told FourFourTwo in 2016: "I don't remember all of my tackles - I was sometimes playing with concussion - but I remember that one.

"Kyle went honestly for the ball and so did I. It's why I like that challenge: it doesn't matter who won; what mattered is that we both went for the ball. I love that about English football and hope it never changes."
