Differences of opinion between players and coaches have also often colored Barca’s recent crisis.
The coaching baton previously held by Quique Setien is now taken by Ronald Koeman.
Vidal, whose name has not been widely needed in Koeman’s Barca squad recently, spoke up about the club’s problems.
“The last three years have not been Barcelona as it should be,” said Vidal, quoted from Goal.
Vidal said there were only 13 professional players in Barcelona.
However, he did not mention who the players were.
“The best team in the world cannot have 13 professional players alone,” he said.
“You can’t always win with club DNA. (Lionel) Messi is the best player in the world, an extraterrestrial creature, but he needs help to achieve better results,” said the former Bayern Munich and Juventus player.
Vidal also commented on the poor communication at Barcelona.
The management openly wanted to get rid of several players.
“I never understood putting a player in that word (transferable). That’s very bad,” said Vidal.

“If a player wants to leave or you want to sell him, help him find a team and don’t say that. Everyone needs respect,” he said.
“I am in a situation of being dumped (Barcelona) and let’s see which team accepts me,” said Vidal.
