Arturo Vidal has become one of Ernesto Valverde's great resources at FC Barcelona. The Chilean has uncovered as a scorer in the midst of a team-style crisis
To day of today and in spite of that are speaking of a team that is leader of First Division and first in the phase of groups of the Champions League, can say that we see split yes and party also to a FC Barcelona denaturalised, that does not know if it goes to golds and to bastos and that to stray all signal of identity of the philosophy of game that enamoró to the world.
Already it does quite time that the team of Ernesto Valverde has given to the resultadismo and to a fault of style and idea of game that carries to especular crash after crash and expect some genialidad of Leo Messi or to the tarpaulin goleador of Luis Suárez or Antoine Griezmann that save the ballot. Curiously, it is being Arturo Vidal the resource of emergency for when it does not finish to light the light bulb of the trident.
Against the Espanyol, went back to appear, with the cane ready, going out of the bench to mark a goal that put provisionally by in front to the Barcelona and that supposed the sixth of the season for him. Statistics that destapan that it is turning into an important resource for the team culé, so much by the defensive work with his pressure as by the instinct goleador that is showing.
In fact, the Txingurri already defined the work of the Chilean like disordered but vital. "Vidal is very generous in the effort, a bit disordered also, but this that seems a defect sometimes turns into a virtue. It planted well between the interiors, more than Arthur, with tendency to control. Arturo is more finalizador, always has arrival", said the Txingurri.
It is in this chaos that generates Arturo Vidal when it goes in to the terrain of game is what turns him into an only player. A midfield player that incorporates from the second line and that, in spite of not being a virtuoso technically, always cuela between the rival defences to generate danger and surprise. A resource to break the monotony that the culés are exhibiting this season and that it can follow giving a lot of points.
Arturo Vidal, a complement key
To his 32 years, the Chilean seems that it lives a second youth in the FC Barcelona. The injuries of knee that suffered does a pair of years did that the Bayern of Munich left him go out course to the Camp Nou without too many complications, but the risk that ran the club culé was worthwhile. Arturo Vidal is showing to be timely, although his future still is in the air.
