What a challenge! Nemanja Vidic on Kyle Walker before Man United’s 2nd equaliser v Spurs [GIF]
All but forgotten in the hours after Manchester United’s 2-2 draw at Tottenham was an absolutely crucial tackle put in by Nemanja Vidic.
After Spurs had gone 2-1 up, with the home crowd roaring them on, they overloaded on the left hand side and played a ball right for the onrushing Kyle Walker.
However, in came Nemanja Vidic to make one of the most “meaty” challenges you have ever seen, winning the ball cleanly and upending Walker in the process.
Seconds later, United had the ball down the inside left channel and won a penalty when Danny Welbeck was upended by Hugo Lloris.
Not only a glorious challenge to watch but also absolutely crucial for Manchester United in the context of the match.
