Nemanja Vidic: What I hated about my time at Manchester United
"I struggled with the weather in the beginning," he told FourFourTwo magazine.
"Moscow is cold in winter but you don’t have rain – you have sunshine.
"I was okay with the food in England: it was good at the training ground and I had a wife at home who knew how to cook, especially Serbian dishes.
"She makes an excellent punjene paprike – peppers stuffed with meat, onion and spices. At Carrington, they asked me if I’d like Serbian food. They were advanced like that.
"Our three boys – they’re now aged nine, seven and four – were born in Manchester and I had the best time of my career there and we still have a house there.
"The only thing I had a problem with was the weather. I really enjoyed Manchester, the social life and its people."
