- Ernesto Valverde gave his first press-conference after Arturo Vidal's arrival
- The Spanish coach mentions the Chilean's great experience and aggressiveness as his main features
- Barcelona boss pays attention to Paulinho's move last year and convinces the fans Vidal will provide the club with the same impact
During the latest press-conference ahead of the International Champions Cup fixture against AC Milan at Levi's Stadium, Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde shared his thoughts over the latest product of this summer's transfer window for Barca, which is certainly Arturo Vidal.
For Ernesto, there's no question the Chilean will contribute to Barca's success the following season.
"He’s a player who we hope will bring energy to the midfield. He has a lot of experience and has played a lot of games on all the teams he has appeared with. He's accustomed to playing in big matches."

"He has a lot of presence on the field and I think that will be very good for us."
The Spanish manager also spoke on Vidal's comparison with the departed Paulinho.
"Like Paulinho, he’s a player who's a little bit different than the ones we have and we think he will be able to adapt well."
Valverde notes specific nature of Arturo's character as one of his main features but ensures the fans the move will go well, bearing in mind the success of Paulinho's arrival.
“He's a warrior. Our team has space for many different types of players."

"Last year there was a little bit of controversy when Paulinho came, and before he even played a single minute. Then people saw that he worked out really well."
