Valverde: 'Vidal gives us energy'
- Vidal is a special player, according to Ernestro Valverde.
- Valverde pointed out that the midfielder has to come a long way from being ostracised by Barca fans to being adored by them.
Ernesto Valverde talked to the media after Barcelona beat Getafe 2-0 at the Camp Nou with the goals from Arturo Vidal and Getafe's Mauro Arambarri.
The Chilean who scored the winning goal at times seemed the only Barca player to care for the game's outcome. With three shots and four successful tackles, Vidal has produced his trademark robust performance and Camp Nou fans cheered him for the effort.
Ernesto Valverde praised the midfielder as well in his post-match press conference:
"Vidal gives us great energy. He was already very criticized when he came here and, in the end, he is helping us a lot with his characteristics. I made him play closer to Leo in the second half."
