Doctor: Vidal to be ready for World Cup

TURIN, Italy -- Juventus' team doctor says Chile midfielder Arturo Vidal will be fit for the World Cup despite undergoing surgery just five weeks before his country's first match of the tournament.

Vidal is a key player for both club and country.

Vidal underwent surgery on his right knee days after his club Juventus had mathematically secured the Italian league title.

On Saturday, club doctor Fabrizio Tencone said: "He will be available for the World Cup. Arturo left Turin with his knee in the best possible condition after the operation. Now the Chile medical staff will evaluate him."

Tencone also dismissed reports that Vidal's World Cup is at risk because Juventus put off the operation.

He added: "There was no delay: it would have been a medical error to operate before, it was right to try and manage it non-surgically at the beginning."
