Arturo Vidal, who was signed by Barcelona to strengthen their options in the midfield, said that he isn’t happy at the club because of the lack of game time he has got so far.
The Chilean joined the Catalan giants from Bayern Munich this summer and has been able to secure just two starts for himself -both of which have resulted in substitutions.
“How can I be happy if I don’t play, and me of people?” Vidal said after he joined the national team, according to reports from Diario Sport on Tuesday.
“I am somebody who has always fought, been at the best teams in the world, won everything and who wants to continue winning at Barcelona, ” he further added.
Barcelona head coach Ernesto Valverde has opted to hand Brazilian midfielder Arthur a place in the first team ahead of Vidal. The Chilean didn’t even feature in their draw against Valencia at the Mestalla stadium where Lionel Messi cancelled out Ezequiel Garay’s opener to salvage a point for the defending champions.
Vidal played for just three minutes in the Champions League fixture against Tottenham Hotspur last week.
“I am fine physically and happy. In the past few games, I have been a bit annoyed but that is how it is, we will keep battling. There are a lot of important games but we will see,” he added.
