• New Juventus midfielder Mario Lemina: ‘I am like Arturo Vidal’

    When asked on whether he was comparable to Vidal, who left Juve for Bayern Munich this summer, the Frenchman admitted that there were some similarities.

    “I think we have some things in common. We both like to defend, but we also like to get forward. I don’t know if I can do what he did, Vidal is still Vidal, he’s a great player,” he told reporters.

    The 22-year-old joined Juve on a season-long loan from Marseille in the latter stages of the transfer window, with the Italians having the option to make the deal permanent next summer.
