Prior to the goalless draw between Alianza Lima and Colo Colo for matchday 3 of the Copa Libertadores 2024, midfielder Arturo Vidal once again became the protagonist of a controversy. And the 36-year-old veteran soccer player received a harsh complaint for violating the laws of Chile for the second time in less than 30 days.

It all started on April 17 when the former Barcelona player uploaded a story with his cell phone while driving his car at 100 kilometers per hour. This caused rejection by the NGO No Chat, a social organization that raises citizen awareness and awareness that seeks to reduce the rate of road accidents in the southern country.

She spoke out through her Twitter account and asked the ‘chief’ to take action against the midfielder. “It is the second time in less than a month that complaints have appeared against the Colo Colo player, Arturo Vidal, for violating the No Chat Law and showing it on his social networks. “The club’s leadership cannot tolerate that an athlete, a reference for thousands of people, acts in this way.”

Vidal could be sanctioned by the Chilean authorities. According to the No Chat Law, the athlete’s action is considered a very serious infraction and has a fine of 1.5 to 3 UTM (each UTM is valued at 65,182 Chilean pesos, which is equivalent to 255 soles). Additionally, the driver’s license is suspended for between 5 and 45 days. If you are a repeat offender, it increases to 90 days.

The truth is that at the moment Colo Colo has not taken any action against Arturo Vidal and no sanction has been known for the midfielder under Chilean law. The ‘King’, as he is known, is focused on what will be the duel with Alianza Lima for date 3 of the group stage of the Copa Libertadores 2024.

Although the NGO’s complaint was made last Wednesday, today, Tuesday, April 23, it dominated all the front pages of the media in Spain. The Sport portal titled this incident as “Arturo Vidal scandal! Reported after being photographed while he is driving.” While El País wrote the following: “A former Barcelona player, reported for recording himself while driving and uploading the video to Instagram.”

Both websites recalled his incident when he was still a footballer for Juventus in Italy. Exactly in 2015, when returning to the ‘red’ concentration, Vidal crashed his car and tested positive for alcohol. Fortunately, he only suffered minor injuries while his car was totaled.

Spanish media reported on the complaint against Arturo Vidal for breaking traffic laws.

Last Tuesday, April 23, Alianza Lima and Colo Colo shared the points at the Monumental stadium in Santiago, in the duel valid for the third day of Group A of the Copa Libertadores 2024. The ‘intimate’ team had a clear opportunity to goal at the end, but forward Jeriel De Santis wasted it.

Post-match, Arturo Vidal gave statements to the press and surprised by questioning the playing style of the team led by Alejandro Restrepo. Likewise, the ‘King’ sent a strong warning for the return match that will take place in Matute during date 5.

“The most important thing is that we have a team and since they came to get here, we are going to go get the three points there at home,” he expressed.

In this way, Alianza added a point in ‘mapocho’ territory and is still alive in the Conmebol competition, despite being in last position with 2 units.
