The arrival of Arturo Vidal to Atlético Paranaense has been one of the most important movements of the week in Brazil, and it has not gone unnoticed in the squad that awaits the historic Chilean midfielder.
This Thursday, the emblem of the “furacao”, Fernandinho, was in charge of welcoming him. The ex Manchester City was consulted about the incorporation of the King and his response immediately became viral.
“Could it be that they will have to change our name to Asilo Atlético Paranaense?”, he declared jokingly, and playing with his age (38 years) and that of Vidal: he turned 36 last May. “It is the coach who has to decide, we are club officials and we are here to work every day,” he added.
“Without a doubt Arturo Vidal is an exceptional player. I had the opportunity to play against him a few times and he is an excellent player. Our expectation is that he will help us, not only technically on the pitch, but also outside, giving advice and helping the youngest players”, closed Fernandinho.
