Arturo Vidal was a fundamental footballer for Ernesto Valverde, already went like headline or like revulsivo from the bench. In fact, the 'Txingurri' opuso to his course in several occasions because it considered him important for covering a lot of field, exploding his capacity to surprise arriving from second line or of presionar to the rival from the exit of the balloon to achieve numerous recoveries.

But in January, the technician extremeño was ceased and Quique Setién arrived to relieve him. The santanderino was an admirer confeso of the footballers with 'DNA Barça', by what seemed that his philosophy fit much more with the one of footballers like Frenkie of Jong, Arthur Melo or Riqui Puig that with the one of the own Arturo Vidal. Like this the things, foresaw a descent of leadership of the Chilean, but is sucediendo all the contrary.

The '22' culé is one of the immovable players for Quique Setién, the one who more parties accumulates in the medullary beside Sergio Busquets and to the lesionado Frenkie of Jong. In fact, Arturo Vidal went back to be headline against the Celtic of Vigo and the duel of Balaídos was his decimosegunda consecutive participation, already was as headline or from the bench. Something that shows the absolute faith of Setién in a footballer that, in a principle, seemed that it did not go to explain so much for him.

The Chilean is a midfield player batallador, llegador and of physical deployment, by what split in disadvantage in front of other players that could be more fruitful to reflect the game of possession that wanted to show Setién. But, at the end, his experience has finish imposing to the profile of other footballers and Arturo Vidal has been key also for the santanderino.

Fourth maximum goleador

Arturo Vidal is the maximum chamber goleador of the FC Barcelona, only surpassed by the 26 goals of Leo Messi, the 16 of Luis Suárez and the 14 of Antoine Griezmann. The Chilean is a good llegador from the medullary and reflects to perfection the effect typical surprise of a midfield player that incorporates to the finish when it can. In a team of possession, the '22' is the piece that descuadra the plans of the rival.

Valverde, in his day, described this effect like this "chaos" that descoloca to the opponent. This yes, in spite of treating of a big footballer, his presence in the onces also diminishes the capacity of the team to move the balloon with the speed that does it a footballer like Riqui Puig, that showed in Balaídos that, if the logic imposes , has to be headline while it was still in this state of form.
