Since that moment Vidal has spread out much of his repertoire of complete player, running everywhere with tireless energy and proposing himself in varied tactical situations. As a pure striker over his inclusion on the milan defense to try Roma with a double shot, the second deflected against the crossbar in a miraculous way, sailed; as a regista for the cross as a kiss for Matri‘s winning goal at the end of recovery time. Gave the impression of considerable athletic substance passed on to coach, colleagues and fans to be a cool guy who never gives up.
It’s too early to make judgments but the first impression of depth that he will put at risk of Marchisio as a starter was no doubt comforting. It is not easy to descend into a new reality and game mechanics into a team that is already beginning to have a precise physiognomy, Vidal has been able to do naturally, minimizing the initial embarrassment and dressing in a hurry the role as protagonist, with a clear commitment and diligent humility.
The possibility of a true 4-2-4 depend very much on the contribution that Vidal will give especially in terms of dynamism and willingness to sacrifice, to ensure some balance to the team and allow the team to withstand the simultaneous presence of four offensive players. Arturo, then, seems to combine quantity and quality in his play and have an innate flexibility that will allow Conte to implement him in multiple roles, depending on the needs dictated by the inevitable unavailability that it will be necessary to cope during the season.
A precious jolly, in short, on the carpet of the new season.
