Chile medics fly in for Vidal

There are reports Chile’s medical staff are flying in to examine Juventus man Arturo Vidal’s knee injury.

The midfielder has been suffering from a recurring problem to his knee and hasn’t started since the 2-0 defeat to Napoli on March 30.

He isn’t even on the bench for tonight’s Europa League semi-final against Benfica and there are real concerns about when he’ll next be available.

According to Sport Mediaset and Sky Sport Italia, Chile are worried about the implications for the World Cup campaign.

They are sending over a delegation of medical staff to visit Vidal and discuss strategies with the Juventus doctors.

“We are not worried, but we are waiting to learn more,” added Juve general manager Beppe Marotta.

“We don’t think it’s anything serious, but the pain persists so we need further tests. We’ll know more over the next few days.”
