Former Juventus star Marcelo Salas is backing fellow Chilean Arturo Vidal for success in Turin.
Salas was the first Chilean to sign for Juve.
â€śHe was a great swoop,â€ť the former Lazio striker told Calcio GP. â€śHeâ€™s a very useful player, blessed with dynamism and good technique.
â€śIn modern football it is important to have an element like him who can play in more than one role.â€ť
Vidal didnâ€™t start in Juveâ€™s first game of the season against Parma, but he did come off the bench to score in the 4-1 win.
â€śArturo is the ideal midfield partner for Andrea Pirlo,â€ť the 1998 World Cup player continued. â€śThey would be perfect, a complete and well assembled partnership.
â€śOne would steal the ball with the right level of sporting aggression, while the other would dictate play. Itâ€™s ideal.â€ť
