Arturo Vidal has praised his teammate Lionel Messi for his spectacular hat-trick in Barcelona’s 4-1 triumph over Betis. “We have to enjoy him a lot, we have to take advantage of being with him,” he told La Tercera.

“The talent he has will not be seen again in this world. He’s astonishing, Leo. You can see it today and every time he enters the pitch.”

Barcelona are now 10 points clear in La Liga. “It is a very important victory for all it signifies. Betis is a great team,” he said.

“I have changed the football that I play many times,” he said, speaking of his first season at Bacelona. “I have tried to adapt the best way possible. Today, I feel comfortable, the people make me feel this way.”

Vidal is now on his way to join up with the Chilean national team. “It’s very important that in the two coming games we play well,” referring to the friendlies against Mexico and the United States, “and that the manager makes the best squad to fight for the Copa América.”
