Did Vidal complain about his playing time?

Arturo Vidal sends cryptic message after playing three minutes vs Spurs

October 3, 2018 By Oscar Rojas
The Chilean midfielder posted a short Instagram Story right after Barcelona's 4-2 victory in the UEFA Champions League.

It wasn't all sunshine and rainbows after Barcelona's 4-2 victory against Tottenham in Matchday 2 of the UEFA Champions League, as some players were not happy about their role in today's clash.

One of those footballers was Arturo Vidal, who saw his playing time limited to seven minutes (although only three will go up to the tournament's tally). The Chilean midfielder came on as Arthur's substitute, and even got entangled in an argument with Lucas Moura during his cameo appearance against Spurs.

As soon as the game concluded, Vidal took it to social media to share his discomfort. The former Bayern midfielder posted an Instagram story that featured a angry face, which is a clear indication of his feelings after playing three minutes.

The player's complaints seem to be well-founded, as he has only played a secondary role since joining Barcelona this summer. In fact, Spanish newspapers didn't understand why Vidal was taken off the pitch during last weekend's match against Athletic, where he was highly praised by his contribution to the team.

If this message was aimed at his coach, we will have to wait and see if Ernesto Valverde decides to handle this matter internally.
