Vidal: Juventus can emulate Bayern
Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal has claimed his side can mirror the achievements of Bayern Munich in the coming years.
The Italians romped to the Serie A title this term, their second consecutive league success under the guidance of coach Antonio Conte.
But Vidal is keen to take that dominance into Europe in order to emulate the UEFA Champions League finalists.
"There is a big difference between Bayern and ourselves, but that is because they have been following a project for years and they've reached three Champions League finals in four year," he told Tuttosport.
"I think Juventus can follow the same path. I actually think that we are stronger than Bayern were a few years ago. We can become like them."
Vidal is the club's joint-top scorer in the league alongside Mirko Vucinic, but does not feel that a lack of goals from the forward line is cause for concern.
“It's a big strange, but our style of play allows for this to happen," he continued.
"Our strikers are judged badly, but if I or Claudio Marchisio score then it is because Alessandro Matri, Fabio Quagliarella and the others make sacrifices for us.”
Vidal's good form has led to suggestions he could be targeted by other clubs, but the Chilean says he is happy to stay put.
"I'm content and I am not thinking about anything else," he continued. "Obviously you never know what will happen in football, but I’m happy here.
"I have an excellent relationship with boss Antonio Conte. He's an exceptional person and an out of the ordinary Coach.
"The fans also recognise my generosity. They have understood what I want to do on the pitch and they know that when I put on the Juventus shirt I play with my heart."
