Ernesto Valverde would not comment on Arturo Vidal’s short term or long term future at Barcelona.

Vidal has publicly expressed his displeasure at being only a bit-part player at Barcelona this season.

Last season saw him as the go to guy for the midfield roll at the Camp Nou. Now, why he has made ten appearnces, they are little more than cameos.

In an interview reported by Football Italia, his manager Ernesto Valverde was asked about Vidal’s recent comments and his future at the club.

Valverde was rather non-committal in discussing both the short and the long term for the Chilean international.

He said:

“Vidal is our player. We are happy with him. There are so many rumors.”

“We will see tomorrow if he plays or not.”

“When the January transfer window arrives, we will see what happens.”

If Vidal didn’t feel important before those comments, they will have done nothing to help those feelings, if they didn’t make them worse.
