    Coming back too early from injury to play for us, and he basically halved his recovery time to play for Chile at that world cup. A lot of wear and tear on that joint, he just doesn't quite get around like he used to. Plus the wandering eye, and the ridiculous drunk Ferrari crash.

    IMO, there was a time he was the best B2B midfielder in the world. The way he could press and recover his position made it feel like we had an extra man in midfield during a lot of matches. Really nice offensive contributions at key times, too; technique was underrated by a lot of people who didn't watch Juve. He was awesome.

    But yeah, iirc he lost Iniesta tracking back on that 4th minute CL final goal, and I was almost positive he was getting a second yellow in that first half. Didn't he lightly push somebody in the head or something while on a yellow? He was just way too amped up that match, couldn't control his emotions at all.

    I'm always going to be fond of his time at Juventus though. A monster on his day.

    The Chilean international was sold by the Bianconeri that summer, and quotes from his national team Coach during the Copa America that year are being reported by AS.

    It’s reported by the newspaper that Sampaoli made complaints about several members of his squad during the tournament, which Chile eventually won.

    “Vidal? He needs a medical specialist,” the tactician allegedly said.

    “He likes to drink and he’s not controlled. When we were on the plane back from Lima, he asked me if he could open a bottle of beer he’d bought at the airport.

    “I said no, then directors and other people came. He and others got a bottle of whisky with the help of the driver, who I had to lay off even though I knew Vidal was the culprit.”

    Vidal crashed his Ferrari while under the influence during the tournament and given a two-year ban, and Juve sold him to Bayern Munich for €37m plus bonuses on July 28.

    Sampaoli also had harsh words for ex Napoli man Eduardo Vargas, who he is said to have accused of being “worse than before” every time he reported for international duty, and Mauricio Pinilla who is said to “only think about parties”.

    It should be noted that these are not direct quotes, but rather things Sampaoli allegedly told journalists off the record in 2015.

    If ever there was any doubt...it can be put to rest now.

    The club saw this before anyone else and kudos to our board for taking action.

    Says a lot for him to come out and tell the world like he did.

    Pretty clear why we sold him now. His partying was starting to get the better of him. What a shame.

    We don't miss the off field antics though.

    it's one game. Higuain has been mostly horrible in CL knockouts for his whole career, Vidal has been mostly great for both Juve and Bayern. and Higgy didn't do one good thing in that 2nd half, we might as well have played a panda bear instead of him, wouldn't have made a difference

    Lol @ people comparing Vidal with Higuaín in the Champions League.

    Vidal has been an absolute beast in Europe while Higgy is just a timid pussycat.
