The Serbian defender had taken on the armband during the early weeks of the season during club captain Gary Neville's quest to return to fitness.

With Neville no longer a regular in the United side, and Ryan Giggs and Rio Ferdinand also not involved in every match, Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed Vidic will remain as skipper this season.

Vidic is happy to accept the responsibility of the captaincy and is confident he can learn from the previous skippers at Old Trafford.

"Being captain will add to my game," said the 28-year-old.

"I am still doing what I did before; doing my best to help the team, but I am also trying to raise my game to play even better.

"It is a big responsibility, but like I said before, Gary, Ryan and Rio have worn the armband over the years and they are the example for all the players.

"When you have people like that around it is very easy."
