Vidal facing disciplinary action for night out

Juventus star Arturo Vidal is likely to receive a hefty fine for being involved in a brawl in a bar last week.

Juventus are set to take disciplinary measures against midfield star Arturo Vidal, who became embroiled in a bar brawl last week.

The talented midfielder was repeatedly linked with Manchester United in the summer but no move came to fruition, possibly due to fears over his fitness.

Vidal has been mostly impressive when he has been fit to play this season, but he has been dogged by injury woes and now he is causing Juventus headaches with his off-the-pitch conduct.

According to Tuttosport, Vidal got into a fight in a Turin nightclub last week after a group of men took against his conduct with a woman in their group.

It is expected that Vidal will be called before Juventus staff to explain his behaviour and he faces a warning and a big fine.

Vidal came on after 79 minutes of Juventus's 3-2 win over title rivals Roma at the weekend but his only real contribution was to be in an offside position - deemed not interfering with play - when Leonardo Bonucci scored the winner.
