After tests showed that midfielder Arturo Vidal had not sustained an injury, Inter coach Antonio Conte was able to breathe a sigh of relief.
At the half-time of Inter’s 2-0 victory over Fiorentina in Serie A yesterday evening, after a knock to his left knee, the Chilean international was withdrawn with Roberto Gagliardini in his place at the Stadio Artemio Franchi.
Medical tests performed today, however, presented Conte with positive news, with Vidal showing no signs of permanent damage or cause for concern, according to FCInterNews.it.
Early scans after he was removed suggested that no significant injury had been sustained and this was confirmed by today’s follow-up. With the summer arrival from Barcelona suspended against former club Juventus for Tuesday’s Coppa Italia Semi-Final, Vidal will be able to undergo a training schedule over the week to feature next Sunday against Lazio.
The 33-year-old has made 26 appearances.
