Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal confirmed that he is not happy with not playing a single minute at Barcelona, but he has no problems with Valverde.
Just this weekend we saw how Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde said that he doesn’t think Arturo Vidal has a problem with him, but the Chile international only took a few hours after he left Barcelona to show something very different.
The midfielder who arrived this summer from Bayern München, confirmed that he is angry for not playing any minutes but he doesn’t have a problem with the manager.
He also clarified a message he wrote on social media where he spoke about a certain ‘Judas’, which was taken as a direct attack to the Barcelona manager by the press.

“I am not happy but if I have a problem with the coach I will say it to his face,” said Vidal in a press conference quoted by Marca.
“How am I going to be happy if I don’t play and me of all people. I am someone that has always fought, that has been in the best teams in the world, that has won everything and who wants to continue winning at Barcelona.”
“I am fine physically and happy. In the past few games I have been a little irritated but that’s how it is, we will keep battling, there are a lot of important games ahead and we will see.”

“When I have a problem or I am angry then I go straight to the coach and I speak to him,” he added.
“You can have various reasons for doing these things. It (The Judas message) was nothing to do with anything sporting and I took it down to stop people speculating. There are personal things, jokes which you can put on social media and people take the wrong way.”
