The Reason Behind Aleix Vidal And Luis Enrique’s Cold War by paka2016: 10:12am On Apr 28, 2016
It’s now becoming glaring that there is something behind the constant exclusion of Aleix Vidal from Luis Enrique’s 18-man squad list irrespective of the full backs fitness level.

The last time Aleix Vidal was included in a squad list was on March 20 against Villarreal after which he picked up a slight injury which prevented him from facing Atletico Madrid and Real Sociedad but since then he has recovered and trained well but instead of seeing a squad inclusion, Enrique decided to add Rafinha who just came back from a long term injury.

This Tuesday, the journalist Javi Miguel explained the reason of these absences as culled from Weloba , The origin can be found in the injury that prevented Vidal to play against At. Madrid and R. Sociedad. One the training session on April 4 ended, the first after the defeat against Real Madrid, some players (like Aleix Vidal or Jordi Alba) stayed on the pitch kicking a ball to score baskets, an activity out of control of the staff members and in which players bet some money.

After 4 or 5 shots, Aleix Vidal felt some discomfort and ended injured. Just one day before match vs At. Madrid and the trip to Anoeta to face Real Sociedad. So, one of the worst moments, with all the season at stake. When Luis Enrique knew it, he got really angry due to the absurdity of the injury, and decided to put Aleix Vidal in theblacklist.


Apart from this episode, according to Javi Miguel, Vidal’s performance in the trainings after the injury dropped, something which doesn’t help recover trust of the coach.

Barcelona’s next game is away against Real Betis and that presents Luis Enrique with another opportunity to add Vidal to his 18-man squad list.
