"He will be a starting player for many years", his entourage said
Despite Aleix Vidal's secondary role in the last few games, the Catalan player is sure he wants to stay at Barça and try to be the starting right-back of the coming years. This is how his entourage put it in statements to Mundo Deportivo in which they say: "He will be starting for Barça for a long time."
The Catalan footballer wasn't part of the latest squad lists (in which Douglas took his place) and Luis Enrique said in the press conference: "my squad lists say what I think". It was a clear reference to the fact the Asturian coach is expecting more from Aleix Vidal in games and in training sessions, since there is the feeling that the player gave up a little seeing that Sergi Roberto was chosen over him as a right-back replacement.
However Aleix Vidal knows he wants to stay ar Barça and try to get a place in the starting eleven. The footballer has needed a season of adaptation in the club, in a similar situation to Arda Turan's.
