Vidal: 'Happy if Pirlo calls me to Juve'

Barcelona midfielder Arturo Vidal confirms he’d be ‘happy’ to play for Juventus under Andrea Pirlo, while Antonio Conte is ‘tactically the best.’

He spoke to YouTuber Daniel Habif about his next career step and was asked about the possibility of working with former teammate Pirlo.

“It’s spectacular that he has become the coach of Juventus,” said Vidal.

“If he was incredible as a player, imagine him as a coach. He has a real vision of the sport that very few have ever had in football, so I think he can do really well.

“Pirlo is also a wonderful person too, so I can only imagine he’ll be a great coach. We spent four years together and won the Scudetto four times, so if he were to call me, I’d be happy.”

The first three of those titles were under Conte, who also wants to work with Vidal again at Inter.

“Conte is like a machine, he is tactically the best. As for my future, I’m relaxed, we’ll see what happens. I am very fond of Barcelona, but we’ll see.”
