ARTURO VIDAL has claimed he watched the worst match in the history of the Champions League this week as he labelled it "disgusting".

With 83 Champions League appearances it's safe to say Arturo Vidal know a lot about playing amongst Europe's elite.


And the Chilean international slammed Newcastle's clash with AC Milan on Tuesday night.

The game, which ended 0-0, was lambasted by Vidal during a live stream on Twitch for Red Gol.

He said: "I saw the worst match in the history of the Champions League, the one between Milan and Newcastle.

"But those idiots from Milan against Newcastle left me disappointed. They are lucky because they only know how to run, otherwise they wouldn't be there."

The former Inter Milan star was less than impressed with Newcastle's performance, especially given their success in the Premier League last term.

And it appeared he wanted to see more ambition from the Magpies as they lined up for their first Champions League game in over 20 years.

"I don't understand Newcastle, they finish fourth in the league, but it doesn't matter, it's disgusting." He explained.

"They have to risk their lives, if it's their first match, show something more, they made me mad as hell."

And it wasn't just Newcastle that Vidal took aim at with the ex-Bayern Munich midfielder slamming Pep Guardiola's Man City side for being "boring".

He said: "Porto vs Shakhtar was great . [Man] City, on the other hand, are boring, as always.

"And that [game] between PSG and Borussia [Dortmund], I only liked the second half but in the first one I fell asleep."

The Cityzens fought back from a one goal deficit at half time against Red Star Belgrade to wind up as 3-1 victors.

Vidal has played in some memorable Champions League nights across his career with spells at Inter, Bayern, Barcelona and Juventus.

And he suffered the ultimate heartbreak in 2015 when The Old Lady got all the way to the final, only to fall at the last hurdle losing 3-1 to his future employers Barcelona.

He now plies his trade in the Brazilian first division where he plays for Athletico Paranaense after joining the side this summer.
