Chile midfielder who plays professionally for Juventus, Arturo Vidal has apologized with tears after being charged for driving under the influence of alcohol.
The juventus star crashed his Ferrari while driving under the influence on his way back to the Chile camp, after visiting the casino on Tuesday. He was detained by local police.
He has had his license revoked after a hearing on Wednesday in court, but Chile has opted against expelling him from their squad, because he’s important, there’s no other reason.
“I went to the casino, drank two drinks – like, two glasses – and had an accident that put at risk my wife’s life and that of a lot of people,” a tearful Vidal said at a press conference.
“I regret what happened. I want to thank all the people that supported me when I was with the police. I want to apologise to all my team-mates, to the people and to the entire country.
“It is hard to speak about this. I am really ashamed of what happened. I can only apologise.
“I feel the support of the people and want to show on the pitch that this second I’m given is for something.
“I failed everybody, but I will do my best to be a champion.”
