Jorge Sampaoli: Perfect for Premier League, says Arturo Vidal

Reported Chelsea managerial target Jorge Sampaoli has the “perfect style for the Premier League”, according to Chile midfielder Arturo Vidal.

It was reported by the Daily Telegraph last week that Sampaoli, long linked with the Chelsea job, has become a ‘serious candidate’ in Roman Abramovich’s search for a new boss after making it clear he would jump at the chance of taking over at Stamford Bridge.

If the former Chile head coach does indeed get the nod, Vidal believes he will prove a big success.

“I would love to see him in England,” Vidal told The Times.

“He has a lot of quality. He would help any club he joined to improve. He has the perfect style for the Premier League.

“He likes speed, he likes pressing, he likes to attack a lot. That is the football you like in England, isn’t it?

“He works hard too. He understands players, he studies everything. He would do really well in England. He only lives for football.”
