Arturo Vidal has not taken long to aim a dig at Barcelona’s fierce rivals Real Madrid by claiming Los Blancos would have not won the previous two Champions Leagues had VAR been in use.
The Chile international swapped Bayern Munich for Camp Nou earlier this month and after only two competitive appearances for the Blaugrana he has taken a swipe at Madrid.
Vidal was part of the Bayern squad that was beaten by Real Madrid in the latter stages of the previous two editions of the competition.
Bayern felt hard done by on both occasions as Madrid got the rub of the green when it came to the big decisions, including Vidal’s red card in their quarter-final second leg in April 2017.
“With VAR, Bayern would have two more Champions League titles and Madrid two less,” he told Mundo Deportivo.
Those decisions denied Vidal a first European title, so he is determined to go all the way with Barca this season.
