Bayern Munich and Chile midfielder Arturo Vidal has won the Chilean Footballer of the Year award, beating Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez to the prize.

Vidal has pipped the Arsenal forward to the award after an impressive year with club and country.

The 29-year-old midfielder won the Bundesliga title, the DFB Pokal and the DFL-Supercup with Bayern Munich, while winning the Copa America with Chile.

Alexis Sanchez was thought to be the closest challenger to Vidal after an excellent year with Arsenal.

The former Barcelona forward has scored 12 Premier League goals at the start of the current season and is the Premier League's second only to the in form Diego Costa.
