ARTURO VIDAL EYES RETURN AGAINST ARSENAL
Bayern Munich midfielder Arturo Vidal hopes to return in action in his club’s Champions League round of 16 clash with Arsenal in February.
Vidal is currently sidelined with a rib injury, which he sustained in the Telekom Cup final against Meinz on January 14.
Vidal did start against Freiburg as the champions returned to Bundesliga action with a 2-1 success on Friday, but he could not complete 90 minutes and was forced off early in the second half.
“I feel bad and have severe pain on the rib. Now I will have to pause, because I cannot play,” he told TZ.
“I already missed training for a week, but now it should take at least two or three weeks.
“[I will see] how I feel for the last 16 in the Champions League.”
