Barcelona midfielder Arturo Vidal insists he's happy where he is

Barcelona midfielder Arturo Vidal insists he's happy at the Nou Camp.

An 'angry emoji' on his social media had led many to believe that all was not well with the Chilean, but he's moved to dispel those rumours.

"I'm happy and I know that beautiful moments will come which I will enjoy, and do what I know how to do," Vidal told RPP Noticias.

Before the Peru and Chile friendly in the United States, the player, 31, also denied that he is one of the senior players that is trying to "pick the team" for coach Reinaldo Rueda.

"That makes me laugh," he continued.

"I've never been in a team where players choose players.

"Rueda knows a lot about football, and nobody, not even the best player in the world, can tell a coach what to do.

"Clearly, Rueda is a nice person and is building a team with young players and some old ones."
