Vidal at home in Turin

Arturo Vidal claims he feels at home at in Italy and at Juventus and also dismissed the notion the Scudetto battle will be a two-horse race.
The Chilean international made a summer move from Bayer Levekusen and has slotted in seamlessly to Antonio Conte’s midfield.
“I feel at home in Italy. It was my dream to play for a big team here and now I’m at the most important side in the country. When I received the call, I knew that I wouldn’t be playing in the Champions League, but it wasn’t important and now we’re working hard to qualify for next year’s competition,” he told the club’s official website.
Vidal believes the three man midfield along with Andrea Pirlo and Claudio Marchisio is clicking: “Alongside Pirlo and Marchisio, we’re a very strong midfield, it’s true, but in Europe there’s the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid. However, in Italy, I must say that Udinese are great in the middle of the park.
“There’s a great spirit between us and this has impressed me – we’re like brothers. In terms of the system, for me it’s always important to defend well, before going forward, but I’m very settled in the three-man midfield. Am I scoring less compared to previous seasons? Yes, but I’m happy all the same, because we’re unbeaten and top of the table. If I manage to score a few more, even better, but I prefer that Juve win.”
Vidal noted the differences between Serie A and the German Bundesliga: “There’s a lot more emphasis on tactics here and all games are tough because every team gives their all against Juventus. It wasn’t like that at Leverkusen, they were a team who played well, but there was a lot less pressure.”
He then turned his attention to the Scudetto. Currently, Milan leads on goal difference over the Bianconeri, but Udinese and Lazio are close behind, while Inter, Napoli and Roma lurk around the European places.
“It’s not just Milan and Juve who need to be considered, also Inter, Udinese, who are very strong as we saw in the last game, Napoli, Roma… it would be a mistake to think that Milan are our only rivals.”
Juventus are currently in the Middle East preparing for the second half of the championship and will take on Lecce this weekend. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
