Giorgio Chiellini has revealed in his new autobiography, which was released on Tuesday, how current Barcelona player Arturo Vidal had issues with alcohol at Juventus.
The 35-year-old won four Scudetti with Vidal between 2011 and 2015.
“Someone like Vidal sometimes went out and drank more than he should have. Everyone knew it. It can be said that alcohol was a bit of a weakness for him. However, that doesn’t put into question whether he is a champion or which type of person he is. Weaknesses are part of human nature. What matters are the consequences they can have on a squad. The great Arturo didn’t show up for training a couple of times a year or, when he did, let’s say he was rather merry.”
