Vidal hails Juve heart

Arturo Vidal reassures Juventus fans his ankle injury is not serious after scoring a goal in a 2-2 draw with Chelsea.

“I had this ankle injury, but I am fine now and I’m happy the team proved the work we did last season led us to this. We’re happy to be in the Champions League,” said the Chilean.

He was already limping heavily after turning his ankle on the Stamford Bridge turf when he scored a fine daisy-cutter from the edge of the box before half-time.

The Bianconeri were 2-0 down at the time, but fought back with Fabio Quagliarella for a thrilling 2-2 draw.

“We showed the same heart as last year in Serie A. We want to play in three competitions and this is the Juventus we need to see every game.

“I am fine and will work with the doctors, so should be fit for the weekend if the Coach wants to pick me.”
