Arda Turan takes a swipe at Martin Atkinson

Arda Turan took to twitter to take a swipe at the Premier League referee Martin Atkinson after failing to send off Dani Carvajal during Real Madrid’s 2-1 defeat to Juventus.

Carvajal clumsily fouled Carlos Tevez in the area, allowing the Argentine to score from the penalty spot kick and secure all three points.

However, the Spanish international escaped any further punishment despite Martin Atkinson sending Arda Turan off for a similar offence last month.

Arda took to Twitter to write: “Funny that the referee who gave me two yellow cards is applying the same rules as the referee who didn’t give two yellow cards to Carvajal, isn’t it?”

Turan became the first Turkish born player to win the La Liga as Atleti won their first league title since 1996 last season.

The 28-year-old was also part of the team that reached the Champions League final last season.
