Barcelona’s Arturo Vidal is targeting a ninth consecutive title when La Liga resumes, having won honours each preceeding year with Bayern Munich and Juventus, insisting there are “11 finals” left to play for Quique Setien’s side.
Vidal has racked up 94 appearances across all competitions for Barca since joining the club from Bayern in 2018, scoring nine goals.
The 33-year-old was instrumental in the Blaugrana’s successful La Liga defence last season, and has once again been a key member of the squad in 2019-20.
He told Barca’s official website:
“These 11 games are going to be 11 finals, we are all clear about that, and that they will be very difficult. We have to trust ourselves, we have to think about winning and also doing it in the best way.
“It would be a dream to win nine leagues in a row, because achieving a record with that many titles is very difficult. I still feel good and will continue fighting and winning trophies.
“Few players in history have done this and I’m proud. I hope to win the 9th here with Barca.”
