Vidal: 'I'd always hoped to come back one day'

Wolfsburg – After four years away, he is now back. During FC Bayern München's penalty shoot-out defeat to VfL Wolfsburg in the Supercup, Arturo Vidal made his return to German football with his first few minutes in a Bayern shirt.

The 28-year-old spoke to reporters at the Volkswagen Arena afterwards about his return, showing altogether more joy at being back in the Bundesliga than disappointment at not getting his hands on a trophy – just yet.

'I'm usually pretty quick on the uptake'

Question: You then took the first penalty in the shoot-out. Is that a sign of things to come?

Vidal: No, no. The coach told me that I should take the first one and it was no problem for me. I felt confident and I put it away.

Question: You've trained under Pep Guardiola and your new team-mates for a few days. What are your impressions so far?

Vidal: I'm really pleased to have come here. It's really impressive how things work here. I think I've got some great team-mates who give everything for the team, the atmosphere's great and I'm delighted with the way I've been welcomed here.
