Juventus midfielder Vidal happy playing for Conte

Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal admits he enjoys playing for coach Antonio Conte.

The Chilean has won comparisons as a midfielder with the tactician after quickly settling into life with La Vecchia Signora.

“I saw him play and even here at Vinovo we have watched DVDs of that Juventus side that he played in,” the summer signing from Bayer Leverkusen told the Corriere dello Sport.

“I don’t know if I am like him as a player, but I know that we all want to become a side as strong as his…”

Conte replaced Gigi Del Neri on the Juve bench this summer after leading Serie B side Siena into the top flight last term.

“Conte is a Coach who knows a lot about football, he’s passionate and loves his work. I like how he prepares us for games. I like the fact that he always wants to win.”
