Nemanja Vidic believes he can end his Manchester United career with success in the Champions League, ESPN has reported.

Vidic has already announced he will leave Old Trafford at the end of his contract this summer and with United down in sixth place in the Premier League table, 11 points short of the final Champions League qualification position, winning the tournament may be the champions’ only chance of playing in it next season.

Speaking after United beat Crystal Palace on Saturday, Vidic insisted that eventuality was not impossible.

“I believe we can do something special in the Champions League, I really do,” Vidic said. “If we play solid like we did today, keep our shape, I think we will be a hard team to beat.

“We always have people who can score goals and that is the way you play in the Champions League - be hard to beat, but be able to score.”

United beat the Eagles 2-0 with a Robin van Persie penalty and a goal from Wayne Rooney. The victory moved David Moyes’ side above his former team, Everton, on goal difference, after the Toffees lost to Chelsea. Everton do however have a game in hand and United have still to travel to Goodison Park this season.

Olympiakos are United’s opposition in the last 16 of the Champions League with former United goalkeeper Roy Carroll likely to be involved for the Greek side.
