Vidal lay-off extended

Injury concerns are growing over Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal, who will miss Sassuolo and possibly Benfica.

The Chile international picked up a knee problem during the 2-0 defeat to Napoli and has struggled ever since with only a handful of substitute appearances.

According to today’s reports, Vidal underwent further tests and was told to rest completely for three days.

It rules him out of Monday’s Serie A match against Sassuolo and possibly also the Europa League semi-final with Benfica on Thursday.

It was also rumoured that Chile are worried about his conditions, so are sending over their own medical staff to examine Vidal personally ahead of the World Cup.

Together with the Juventus doctors, they will decide what is the best course of action to have him back in shape.
