m88 I know theyll give their everything to win. A group of fans, who had gathered outside the court to show their support for one of the key player for La Roja and the leading scorer of the competition with three goals, tried to force their way into the courtroom as the media were to be allowed in, delaying procedures and resulting in the media being banned from the courtroom.
Vidals legal scramblings have, however, thrown Chiles preparations for their key game against Bolivia on Friday into disarray.
Arturo Vidal has had his driving licence temporarily revoked by a Chilean judge for drink driving. Vidal, who has been linked with summer moves to Arsenal and Manchester United, is no stranger to controversy while on national duty. They beat Ecuador 2-0 in the opening match, with Vidal scoring the first, and drew 3-3 with Mexico, with Vidal scoring twice.
I never test my players for alcohol when they arrive at training. I dont believe this is as serious as some have tried to portray it.
If he hadnt crashed, he would have arrived at the right time to training but maybe not been able to control what state he was in. An internal correction. He was in his free time after all. But its not in my nature to single out and exclude someone for making a mistake.
Sampaoli requested an extraordinary meeting with the president of the ANFP, the Chilean FA, on Wednesday morning to discuss the forwards future. Back in 2011 he was one of five players handed a 10-game ban after breaking a curfew.
Sampaoli and his coaching team deem Vidal a pivotal piece to their teams Copa Amrica campaign. And I dont see their decision to drink as a question of my authority.
He will also have to present himself each month to the Chilean embassy in Milan for a period of 120 days while further investigations take place.
At this point itd be easier to exclude him than to include him. Juventuss 28-year-old Chile international, who is in the country for the Copa Amrica, was arrested after crashing his Ferrari in the outskirts of Santiago while under the influence of alcohol late on Tuesday night. However, the Chile coach, Jorge Sampaoli, has stated he is unlikely to be removed from the squad for the tournament, in which his team top their group with one match remaining.
Arturos accident worried us all, said Sampaoli. It had been reported that Sampaoli was concerned about any punishments the ANFP might hand the Juventus player and has pleaded, successfully, on behalf of the striker.
Vidal suffered minor injuries in the crash, after which he is believed to have said to the arresting officer: You can handcuff me but youll only be fucking up the whole of Chile. We will see how he is. And if we notice anything that affects the national team, we will make a decision on that. The group will understand this decision is not because hes Vidal but because its a situation that we need to manage.. I trust my team. The first thing that crossed our minds were his health and his family. He is a very valuable player who has made a mistake, but not the kind of mistake to exclude him. He appeared in court following the incident on Tuesday
