Juventus boss Antonio Conte has praised the form and continued development of Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal.
Vidal has been a key factor in Juve’s impressive performances this season, which have seen them surge to the top of the table.
Conte’s men are now on the verge of winning their second successive Serie A title and he said the Chilean enforcer had been a big part of his side’s campaign.
“Vidal has grown exponentially as a player since arriving here. He’s important for us and always gives 110 percent,” the Juve coach said.
“Arturo has managed to combine his intensity and excellent technique with a strong tactical knowledge.”
“It’s been a triumphant run this season, especially considering our involvement in the UEFA Champions League.
We’ve been out in front from the very start. Winning the Scudetto would crown two magnificent years,” he said.
“It’s been a tough, tiring and stressful year but we’ve done something extraordinary considering where we started out.”
