Courted by OM, this great player responded to the interest of the Marseille club and that of his coach.
Asked about the interest of OM and its coach Jorge Sampaoli, Arturo Vidal preferred to remain cautious, even if the Chilean midfielder said he was seduced by the possibility of evolving again under the orders of the Argentine coach: “With Jorge , we speak as soon as we can. We have a good relationship. I respect him. Talking about teams like that is very difficult. I respect Inter a lot, I respect what he does as a coach in Marseille. I am very well here. I just became champion. I can’t think of anything else right now. “

“Sampaoli is an important person for me in football, Vidal added in an interview with TNT Sports Chile. He made me champion with my selection. He is a coach who made me grow a lot as a player, as a person. He is very direct. He doesn’t hesitate to tell you things to your face. I am grateful to him. It allowed me to continue to progress. Conte, Ancelotti… all my coaches have helped me a lot, but Sampaoli is special, he won me a title with my country, it marks for life. “
