Aleix Vidal is once again news. This time, not for sporting reasons, but for an enigmatic Instagram post.
The Barcelona right-back, who against Atletico was left out of the squad for the third game running, published a photo with no comment, but with two emoticons. One was the 'shut up' face and the other was the middle finger. Who was the message for?
Theories circling on social media claim it could be directed at Luis Enrique, who does not seem to count on him, or at the media who have been reporting on his delicate situation at the football club.
SPORT revealed a few days ago that Aleix Vidal would be open to leaving the club in January. Sergi Roberto is the starting right-back and Vidal's opportunities have decreased.
In any case, his Instagram post adds to the mystery surrounding his current situation and his future at the club.
