New signings are often the subject of practical jokes inside football dressing rooms, but Arda Turan has revealed his Barcelona team-mates daren’t cross him in fear of his temper.
The winger threw a boot at a linesman during Atletico Madrid’s clash with Barcelona in January last year, before swapping the Vicente Calderon for Camp Nou in the summer.
Arda Turan – who only made his Barca debut at the start of this month after the club’s transfer ban came to an end – has joked he now has a reputation inside the dressing room.
You could say his team-mates don’t want to put their foot in it…
