This Wednesday Arturo Vidal together with his team, Flamengo, will visit the José Amalfitani in Argentina, to face Vélez Sarsfield in the semifinals of the Copa Libertadores. And prior to the important commitment, the “King” gave an interview to the site of the contest.
There, the national midfielder hinted at his love for the albos and even argued that “to be in Colo Colo you have to be very strong-minded and be a winner, otherwise you can’t be a footballer.”
However, Vidal’s hypothesis did not satisfy everyone. One who responded to him was precisely an idol of the institution, Marcelo Pablo Barticciotto, who on several occasions has recognized that mental strength was not his thing.
In Cooperative Radiosaid: “What do I know, it could be, I was not strong-minded and I played in Colo Colo”.
“Not all cases are the same, that is the truth. I see it from another point of view, perhaps what I am going for is that some are stronger than others, but that alone does not lead you to play in Colo Colo”, the “7″ of the town added later.
For him, more than mental strength, “you have to have conditions, hierarchy, personality, a lot of things that make you succeed”.
Nor, yes, did he want to enter into controversies: “Arturo looks in the mirror and he does feel strong, because at the level he reached with those from Generación Dorada… not everyone can play there. They went further than the others. In that sense, I do agree.”
