Ernesto Valverde spoke about the signing of Arturo Vidal. The Chile midfielder joins Barcelona from Bayern Munich and the coach was pleased with the signing.
"He's a player who we hope will bring us energy in the midfield, he has vast experience. He has a lot of presence, doesn't disappear, is very aggressive. He will suit us well. He is a bit like Paulinho and is a different profile to that which we have.
"We expect that in the short and long temr he will help us a lot. We have the Super Cup, we don't know how he will be (fitness wise) for that. But we hope to count on all his help. He's used to playing big games and moving from one league to another, I don't think it will be too difficult for him.
"Vidal has the aspect of a warrior, he gives everything on the pitch. Aggressive in defence, attack, working hard, he has spirit and that is contageous. He also arrives in the box at the right time, can finish, press."
