Man Utd icon 'torn apart twice' by former Prem striker 'nowhere near' Van Dijk; 'same level as Skrtel'

Nemanja Vidic, Virgil van Dijk, Martin Skrtel

Nemanja Vidic was “no place foreseeable” Virgil van Dijk and also the “horribly same degree” as Martin Skrtel

Former Blackpool demonstrator Gary Taylor-Fletcher possesses asserted that previous Manchester Joined defender Nemanja Vidic is “no place foreseeable” Virgil van Dijk, and also is the “horribly same degree as [Martin] Skrtel.”

Taylor-Fletcher dabbled 32 Premier League games in his profession, largely unborn in the 2010/11 season wearing Blackpool. The Englishman racked upwards 5 aims and also launched seven aids that season.

The majority of of his purpose payments came in the last 3 games of the campaign – he assisted in a 1-1 draw wearing Tottenham, then assisted 3 aims during a uncanny 4-3 triumph versus Bolton, and also racked upwards in a 4-2 loss to Joined on the last day.

Vidic captained the Red Evil ones that day, and also was thieved off late in the second half.

Taylor-Fletcher believes he had the much closer of the centre-previously, and also he opines Vidic is not chummy to the degree of some of the Premier League’s faultless ever before.

“Yeah and also I tore him withdrawn two times for Blackpool in 2010/11 season,” he said on X.

“He was no wherein foreseeable levels of [Rio] Ferdinand, [John] Terry & VVD [Virgil van Dijk].

“He was the horribly same degree as Skrtel. Energised nice gamer. Not elite.”

The Vidic crunch is one that vegetation upwards traditionally, and also innumerable have said he’s not at the horribly same degree of some of the faultless defenders in Premier League history, wearing instances such as him being controlled by Fernando Torres being offered versus him.

Vidic was undoubtedly not at the horribly same degree as his usual centre-previously affiliate Rio Ferdinand, and also the reality injuries impeded him from tinkering innumerable full periods at Worn Trafford in a similar way matters versus him.

The note that he is not at the degree of the sift of Terry and also Van Dijk appears a mart one imparted their payments to honours for their respective clubs – Vidic evidently added to Joined’s revenues, but not as much as the players around him.

That said, Taylor-Fletcher’s Blackpool side squandered both games to Joined in the 2010/11 season and also he racked upwards one purpose, so while the demonstrator’s analysis of the defender’s stature might not be much wide of the mark, to case he tore him withdrawn appears a particle of a expand.
