Vidal’s first workout at FCB

Arturo Vidal has started work at his new club. At quarter past five in the afternoon on Wednesday, the Chile star stepped out onto the Säbener Strasse training ground for the first time and took part in the squad session. The midfielder, who inked a four-year deal with FCB the previous day, was earlier introduced to his team-mates and welcomed to the squad at a team meeting in the performance center. With three days to go until the DFL Supercup clash away to cup winners Wolfsburg, Pep Guardiola supervised all his troops with the exception of injured quintet Franck Ribéry, Holger Badstuber, Jan Kirchhoff, Dante and Javi Martínez.
