Arturo Vidal, perfect signing? We bought king Arturo from Bayern München with tranfer fee €35M. It was little bit strange transfer from out of nowhere. By far Vidal has played 39 games.
One of the most important things of him, he give options for us. If game is 1/2-0 for us he can come from bench and block opponent’s attacks and do ”shadow” work in midfield. Make lot fouls, interceptions. It’s better to be his teammate than opponent.
He also give option to give rest to Busquets. Usually Vidal take only 1-2 touch by ball and then he have already pass to someone else. It’s great thing because we have players who can pass opponent in 1v1 situation with ball control. We have players who can give amazing balls from out of nowhere. Vidal don’t take big role to build up the game, wich is good thing.
Even Vidal is not super creative with the ball, he still make really good and important runs trought the opponents defending line. It gives more time and space for Messi and Suarez. Vidal have great chemistry with Leo Messi wich helps us a lot. ..
With Vidal, we can play with 4-4-2 formation. We destroyed Real Betis with that formation. Vidal played good at LM and gave help for Jordi Alba. He played much better game than Rakitic and Roberto on right side. With 4-4-2 we can win ball possesion teams.
But he have also negative things. Rakitic-Vidal-Busquets can’t be our midfield trio, becuase we need some creativy players, who can win 1v1 situation with the ball, who can give an amazing assits from out of nowhere. At least one of them: Coutinho, Arthur or Alena. - 59 minutes ago
