NAPLES – Arturo Vidal ended up in the sights of Napoli fans but also those of Inter and was literally idolized on social networks by his old Juventus fans. Why all this? Because at the time of the expulsion in Naples-Barcelona , he left the field challenging the fans from Campania and shouting: "Come on Juventus". To remember the rivalry between his Juventus and Napoli when Vidal played in Italy.
In short, the Chilean midfielder remained tied to his old team but with this gesture he practically played the landing at Inter. Antonio Conte did everything to buy it in January but now it will be difficult to make it attractive again to the eyes of the Nerazzurri fans after his show of affection for Juventus.
