Juventus’ midfielder Arturo Vidal is a little nervous as he trains with his fellow team-mates at the club’s academy, but the former Barcelona player has a different idea about his role in the squad.
Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri has been impressed by Vidal’s performances in the last three matches, but he still wants to see more of the Italian international as he looks to rebuild his squad.
“I know I have to do better,” the 20-year-old told Tuttosport.
“I’m still young, so I’m happy to be here, but I can do better.
The players we have are good enough to be part of this squad, but if we want to win the title then we need a lot more.””
I think we need to do a lot better in the game of football, to be more clinical and more focused.
The players we have are good enough to be part of this squad, but if we want to win the title then we need a lot more.”
Juventus face Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League semi-finals on Tuesday (16:00 GMT) and Vidal said he is happy to play alongside Juventus captain Alessandro Florenzi.
“It’s very difficult to play with Florenze,” he said.
“We have to show a lot of quality, but it’s hard to say.
But I am happy to train with Florez, because I know he’s a good guy.
We need to work together and I’m not here to tell him how to play.
I’m here to play, I have nothing else to say.”
