In a month when he took his goal tally for the season to double figures with another three pivotal strikes, Arturo Vidal has been voted January’s best player by Juventus Members.
The Chilean’s importance to the Bianconeri’s success has been clear for all to see, providing a real impetus from midfield and covering every blade of grass as Juve continued to extend their Serie A winning streak.
Vidal began the month in eye-catching style when he snuck unnoticed into the box and chipped home a Carlos Tevez pass to open the scoring in the 3-0 win against Roma, and a brace against Sampdoria followed on Saturday 18 in the team’s 12th consecutive league victory.
After pipping fellow January shining lights Fernando Llorente and Stephan Lichtsteiner to the post, the 26-year-old midfielder will receive his prize just before the Derby d’Italia kicks off this Sunday 2 February at Juventus Stadium.
Handing out the award in person will be a lucky Premium Member who has voted for the man of the match and given the team score ratings after every Juventus fixture.
