A Barcelona chief has hit out at summer signing Arturo Vidal for ‘disrespecting’ his team-mates, insisting he must put it right.

The Chile midfielder, 31, moved to the Nou Camp from Bayern Munich on a three-year deal over summer – but has started just twice for the LaLiga giants so far.

He has yet to last a full 90 minutes and admitted last week on social media to being “irritated” by the situation.

And after speaking out once again to outline his anger at a lack of game-time, reports in Spain claims senior Barca stars have now urged the club to sell on the midfielder, citing his disruptive influence as the main factor – with Manchester United a possible rescue route.

Now, general manager of the Catalan giants – Pep Segura – has hit out at Vidal for his actions.

“He has made a mistake and he must fix it,” Segura told an interview with Diario Sport.

“He has shown disrespect towards his fellow teammates and now there is the opportunity to put that right, which I am sure he will take.

“Our current squad? We have a stronger squad than last season and that was the objective, we have achieved that.

“Ernesto Valverde? He is on a two-year deal and there is an option to add a third, we will come to a decision which suits both parties.”
