Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has voiced his concern over Arturo Vidal’s fitness with an eye on the Bundesliga encounter against Borussia Dortmund after the international break.
Bayern Munich chairman has called on the Chilean FA not to risk the midfielder’s health after the 29-year-old suffered an adductor problem in his country’s 0-0 with Colombia
Vidal suffered an adductor problem in Chile’s 0-0 draw with Colombia on Thursday and was forced to leave the pitch in the closing minutes of the game.
Vidal is nonetheless expected to start again in his country’s next World Cup qualifier against Uruguay on Tuesday and Rummenigge has called on the national team not to take any risks with the midfielder.
“We urge the Chilean Football Association to deal with this situation responsibly and sensibly.
“It should be a given that the player’s health is top priority.”
Vidal has made 15 appearances in all competitions for Bayern in 2016-17, scoring three times.
