During a direct Instagram Vidal said: ‘People have focused on the worst things Chiellini said. And I don’t see why one should say those things, it annoyed me.

‘But he also said that I was a champion. He called me and explained to me. I didn’t do anything I couldn’t do. I was allowed to go out. I am a human being like everyone else. I work hard and if friends meet for an asado with the club’s permission, I’ll go too.

‘If I have to stay focused, I do it. But when it’s my turn to have fun I take advantage of it, I’m just like the others. And when I was wrong, I paid and got up’.

Vidal ended his verbal tirade by hinting that Chiellini had broken an unwritten rule of ‘what happens in the dressing room stays in the dressing room’ by saying: ‘In football there are codes…’.
