Departing Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic has put the blame on the players for their catastrophic season.

The Serbian revealed that fall-outs among the players affected their performance as United finished the league in the seventh position, their worst ever performance in over two decades.

David Moyes, who took over from Sir Alex Ferguson, had to bear the brunt of the team's fading fortunes and was eventually sacked after their loss to Everton.

According to Vidic, Moyes tried to instil a different philosophy into the squad and it was not taken well by the players.

The same backfired on the former Everton man and started a series of problems among the players, who turned on each other as their performance went from poor to worse.

The defender, who is leaving for Inter Milan this summer, revealed that the players were arguing among themselves and had lost their chemistry, which had made them such a formidable unit under Ferguson.

"We argued amongst ourselves. This year more than any other, because when you have bad times, people show they care. We are still friends, but we were arguing to get better. We wanted to improve," Vidic said.

"We could say those things to each other because we have been together for so long, but it hurt. If you didn't argue, it would not be right. We had some hard moments in the dressing room between ourselves.

"There was a transition. You get someone who sees football in a different way and he will want to put his stamp on the team and the way he wants to play. Ryan [Giggs] shares the same ideas as Sir Alex Ferguson and his was a more similar approach to the one we had with Sir Alex. The players are more used to it and felt more comfortable with it.

"I am not saying that the David Moyes' way was bad, but these players feel more comfortable playing a certain way of football. You have to respect where you are and what you represent, though, and there is no point speaking about someone who was here, who everyone knows lost his job because he did not succeed in doing what he wanted to achieve," he concluded.
