Vidal: 'Samp impressed me'

Arturo Vidal has already matched his personal best of 10 Serie A goals, but admits he was impressed by Sampdoria.

The Chilean midfielder bagged a brace in tonight’s 4-2 victory over Samp and contributed to a 12th consecutive Juventus victory.

This means he has netted 10 goals in 20 Serie A rounds – an average of one every other game.

“I haven’t set any specific target for my goals. I just want to carry on like this to the end. I don’t have any bonus tied to the goals in my contract, I just do it for the team!” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“Last time I gave the penalty to Mirko Vucinic, but this time it was for me and thankfully I scored a goal.

“Sampdoria came here to play their football and I think they are a really good side who can go far this season.”

Roma crushed Livorno 3-0 today and Napoli are also eager to keep the pressure on the Serie A leaders.

“This is a difficult League. Roma and Napoli have great players, but we must continue like this to the end in order to earn a third consecutive Scudetto.”
