Conte full of praise for midfielder Vidal

4 May 2013 14:03

Juventus boss Antonio Conte has praised the form and continued development of Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal.

Vidal has been a key factor in Juve's impressive performances this season, which have seen them surge to the top of the table.

Conte's men are now on the verge of winning their second successive Serie A title and he said the Chilean enforcer had been a big part of his side's campaign.

"Vidal has grown exponentially as a player since arriving here. He's important for us and always gives 110 percent," the Juve coach said.

"Arturo has managed to combine his intensity and excellent technique with a strong tactical knowledge."

Juve had to overcome issues such as the four-month ban for Conte after he failed to report match-fixing but sit comfortably top of the table, something which has pleased the former midfielder, who is determined to continue as boss.

"It's been a triumphant run this season, especially considering our involvement in the UEFA Champions League.
We've been out in front from the very start. Winning the Scudetto would crown two magnificent years," he said.

"It's been a tough, tiring and stressful year but we've done something extraordinary considering where we started out.

"Antonio Conte, the man, surely wants to remain the Juventus coach, 100 percent. As a professional - having respect for the supporters, the club, my players and myself - I need to have the whole situation clear before making decisions.

"I need to sit down with the club and talk and understand, because we've had two extraordinary seasons and the expectations are increasing."
