Vidal wanted friendly action

Juventus’ Arturo Vidal says he’s disappointed to have been ruled out of Chile’s friendlies against England and Brazil.

The midfielder is now back in Turin after he sustained a muscle problem in the 3-0 win over Napoli last weekend.

“I’m very unhappy, it’s a shame that I will be missing from two such important matches,” noted the 26-year-old.

“The ties against England and Brazil will count as they will help the team prepare for the World Cup. I wanted to be a part of them.

“Now I just hope to recover as quickly as possible so that I can be ready for Juventus when the championship resumes after the international break.”

The Bianconeri, now just one point behind Roma, will travel to Livorno when Serie A starts again.
