Bad Boy! Vidal Slammed Hefty Fine After Night Club Assault


Barcelona midfielder, Arturo Vidal has been found guilty after being tried on a charge of assault during a nightclub fight last year.

The Munich district court fined the Chilean €800,000 after he was found guilty over the incident in 2017. The fine was calculated based on 80 days’ worth of wages, calculated to be €10,000 per day for the Barcelona player, who left Bayern Munich in August after three years with the German giants.

The 31-year-old was judged in absentia as he starred in Chile’s 1-0 victory over Mexico on Wednesday. According to his Lawyer, his participation in that match “professionally prevented” his appearance in Bavaria for the court hearing.

Vidal and his half-brother were both found guilty after attacking another man at Munich’s Crowns Club in September 2017, which was reportedly caught on security camera.

The Chile international has struggled for game-time in Barcelona after his summer move from Bavarian giants, Bayern Munich. He has managed two starts so far in eight Spanish League matches.
