Vidal targets prolific season for Juventus

The Chilean is keen to score more goals and thinks his side will win Serie A with performances like the one in Saturday's win over Sampdoria

Arturo Vidal is keen to continue his rich vein of goalscoring form after his double helped Juventus beat Sampdoria 4-2 on Saturday.

The Chilean is Serie A's top-scoring midfielder and netted his ninth and 10th league goal of the season as Juve maintained their 100 per cent record at home. 

But despite already equalling his personal tally of last season at the midway stage of the campaign, Vidal insists what counts above everything is helping the team win.

"I work every day to keep developing and am happy to have found the target tonight," the prolific midfielder stated. "I haven't set any specific target for my goals. I just want to carry on like this to the end. 

"I don't have any bonus tied to goals in my contract, I just do it for the team. Last time I gave the penalty to [Mirko] Vucinic, but this time it was for me and thankfully I scored."

Sampdoria were the last side to earn a league win in Turin, but further goals from Fernando Llorente and Paul Pogba ended any hopes of a repeat scenario.

Despite suffering a nervy period in the second half when Manolo Gabbiadini made it 3-2, Vidal feels his team-mates showed they were worth the win as Juve continue towards defending their crown.  

"Serie A is a difficult league. Roma and Napoli have great players, but we must continue like this to the end in order to earn a third consecutive Scudetto," the 26-year-old continued.

"Sampdoria came here to play their football and I think they are a really good side who can go far this season."
