Former Juventus and Inter star Arturo Vidal didn’t hold back when Argentina won the World Cup Final against France and told Kylian Mbappé to ‘learn from South Americans who invented football.’
Vidal was glad to see the Seleccion win the World Cup on Sunday and even posed with an Argentina shirt on Instagram.
He also proved to have a good memory, given that he dusted off an interview of Mbappé from May 2022 when the PSG superstar said football in South America was not as advanced as in Europe.
Vidal shared a screenshot of the title in his Instagram stories and commented: “Learn from those who invented football, South America.”
Vidal is currently under contract with Brazilian side Flamengo, he returned to South America in the summer after spending more than ten years in Europe, playing for Juventus, Bayern Munich, Inter and Barcelona.
Vidal played 175 games in Serie A, scoring 37 goals and winning the Scudetto five times, four with Juventus.
