Inter and Chile international midfielder Arturo Vidal is making waves on social media after a video emerged of him seemingly so drunk he couldn’t get into his car.
La Gazzetta dello Sport notes the video was taken on August 18, which was three days before Inter’s opening Serie A fixture against Genoa.
It’s not clear why the clip has gone viral now, almost two months later.
The video was taken by some women on a balcony onto the street below, where his high-powered red sports car was parked.
After posing with some fans for pictures, Vidal tried to get into the car, but ended up rolling over on the back of it with his legs in the air instead.
He eventually, with a little help, managed to manoeuvre himself into the passenger seat, albeit initially facing the wrong way.
The women filming the video can be heard laughing and saying: “He can’t even stand up.”
Vidal has never disguised his penchant for a party and is not new to unfortunate scenes when off duty.
La Gazzetta dello Sport reports Inter are aware of the incident and had already discussed it with the player in August.
