Vidal recently spoke of his need to leave the club either in January or next summer should he not be a first-team regular, yet Valverde defended his player.
The coach said, "I do not perceive that as putting pressure [on Valverde].
"It is a personal reflection, I'd say.
"We have important games before the winter transfer window.
"He is a player who has fit in very well from the beginning. We are happy with him.
"When he arrived here he knew he was coming to a team that plays in a certain way.
"Players always want to play every game, some will be happier than others.
"There is not much more to say about it."
