Vidal an unlikely goal hero

Arturo Vidal has admitted that he is surprised by his goal-packed start to the season with Juventus.

The Chilean midfielder has scored nine goals in official games for the Old Lady this term, his latest coming in the 3-0 win over Chelsea on Tuesday.

“I’m happy to be scoring so many, I didn’t think I would begin the campaign like this in front of goal,” he noted.

“It’s important to keep going on this path, but above all by helping the team to win.

“It was a difficult game against Chelsea, but we played with intelligence. We put our head, heart and legs into this encounter.

“It’s a message to everyone, showing that we’re strong in Italy but also in Europe.”

Vidal has been a revelation in Turin since his 2011 switch from Bayer Leverkusen. “I’m happy to wear the shirt of Juventus, to play in front of these fans.

“I’m living through a beautiful moment of my life.”
