thumbnail Hello,

Vidal voted Goal readers' midfielder of the season

With the Goal 50 announced on July 29, we wanted to know who you thought was the stand-out midfielder from the 2012-13 campaign

Juventus star Arturo Vidal has been named the best midfielder of the 2012-13 season by Goal readers.

The Bianconeri retained the Serie A title comfortably last term with 'The Warrior' fuelling the challenge from the heart of their engine room. Vidal also performed with distinction in the Champions League as his side reached the quarter-finals before losing to eventual champions Bayern Munich.

The Chilean, who recorded 32.5 per cent of the vote conducted by readers of Goal International, finishes ahead of Gareth Bale, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Juan Mata and Andres Iniesta. To hear our experts' reaction to your vote, watch the video at the top of the page.

We will name our 50 best players from last season on July 29 and Vidal will hope to be higher than last year's top midfielder, Iniesta, who finished in fourth spot in the 2012  Goal 50.
