Arturo Vidal was a bit frustrated after Barcelona’s 2-1 win over Slavia Prague on Wednesday. The Chilean midfielder didn’t get the start again, and let his frustrations be known to Fox Sports Chile.

“I’m upset because I didn’t start but the most important thing is that we won,” he said.

“When someone isn’t doing things well or isn’t paying attention, these things happen. We ended up suffering. It was a hard match and they made it complicated for us.”

Vidal has been playing much better in the last few weeks for Barcelona. However, right now the midfield is crowded and playing time isn’t all guaranteed.

Vidal will need to continue his impressive run of form in order to guarantee more playing time, otherwise there might be more frustration in his future.
