Barcelona midfielder Arturo Vidal seems to have cheered up a bit while on international duty for Chile.

The midfielder played in both of his country’s games against Peru and Mexico after spending most of the season on the bench at the Camp Nou.

Vidal has admitted to being unhappy with his reduced role at Barca but speaking after Chile’s win over Mexico he seemed determined to go back at prove himself in Spain.

“I think it’s been six or seven months where I have not played two games in a row for 90 minutes, so I am very happy,” he said.

“Now I’m going with all my heart to Barcelona to win a place and to fight everything that comes.”

Barcelona have a big week ahead of them with games against Sevilla, Inter Milan and Real Madrid, and it will be interesting to see how much game time Vidal is afforded.
