Edgar Davids says Juventus has the best midfielders in Europe and hopes Arturo Vidal will get the recognition he deserves.
Head coach Antonio Conte has players such as Paul Pogba, Vidal, Andrea Pirlo and Claudio Marchisio at his availability and Davids believes the aforementioned players have more to offer than the highly-rated midfields of teams like Barcelona and Bayern Munich.
"Juventus have the strongest midfield in Europe in my opinion," the Dutchman was quoted as saying by Tuttosport. "Pogba is an extraordinary talent. And then there's Vidal, who is already a real champion. He can become even better, though, and develop into a phenomenon.
"I hope that one day Vidal will be mentioned among other Juventus legends, because he certainly has the abilities to achieve that."
Davids wore the Juventus jersey from 1997 until 2004, winning three Serie A titles during his time in Turin.
