Vidal launches lawsuit against newspaper over alcohol claims
Bayern Munich star Arturo Vidal has launched a lawsuit against Bild following allegations he drank alcohol during the club’s winter training camp in Qatar.
On Tuesday night the German newspaper reported that Vidal had left the team’s headquarters on several occasions and returned in an intoxicated state.
However, Vidal has now released a statement on his official Twitter account strongly denying the claims.
He said: "I would like to say that the claims published today in a German newspaper are absolutely false.
"My lawyers have already been instructed to initiate a legal claim against the newspaper responsible for these lies.
"I’m 100 per cent committed to my team and preparing for the rest of the season, which will be very important for all of us."
