The six players with the most combined votes will enter the Premier League Hall of Fame.
Twice named the Player of the Season in 2008/09 and 2010/11, Nemanja Vidic proved one of Manchester United's most important signings.
The Serbian centre-back's exceptional tackling and reading of the game, as well as a willingness to put his body on the line, laid the foundation for a hat-trick of Premier League titles from his first full season, followed by two more as United captain after the turn of the decade.
Vidic kept an incredible 95 clean sheets from 211 appearances.
“Vida, simply the best out-and-out defender I’ve seen. Aggression and desire to win at all costs, scared centre-forwards to death!” - Michael Carrick
”He became a defender that was feared. He could fight with the most physical. He crunched into tackles. He attacked the ball better than anyone I’ve seen. But, as he will tell you with a smile, he could also play with the ball too, which made him complete and a great defender. Because he was so good in the aggressive areas, people probably overlooked his ability with the ball, to his annoyance!” - Rio Ferdinand
"Nemanja reminds me of Steve Bruce in the sense he always asks a question of defenders. He wants to know whether they have the courage to put their head in front of his. There is no question he can play, there is not a doubt about it. But he doesn't mess about in terms of clearing the ball. He acts like a defender." - Sir Alex Ferguson
Vidic is the only defender to win the Premier League Player of the Season more than once, claiming the honour in 2008/09 and 2010/11.
The centre-back scored five Premier League goals in 2010/11. This is the joint-most by a Man Utd defender in a single season, along with Denis Irwin in 1992/93.
Among the 383 players to have appeared at least 200 times in the Premier League, Vidic posted the best win percentage, winning 71 per cent of his 211 matches.
Vidic made 211 appearances for Manchester United between 2006 and 2014 and won five Premier League titles.
