Barcelona boss impressed with Arda Turan's versatility

Barcelona v Sporting

Barcelona boss Luis Enrique has stated that he is happy with Arda Turan’s versatility.

The Champions League winning manager stated that Turan can effectively play in central midfield or out on the wings .

“Arda can play through the middle as well as on the wing, and until now he’s done well in both positions,” Enrique was quoted as saying by Goal.

“Each position has different demands in attack and defence, but Arda is doing well in both.”

Turan scored his first goal for Barcelona yesterday evening during the La Liga giants 5-1 victory over Vallecano.

The Turkish-international came on after 66 minutes in place of the Croatian international Ivan Rakitic.

Turan’s goal came in the 86th minute when he headed in a cross from Jeremy Mathieu.

The reigning champions have gone 35 games without a defeat which is a club record surpassing the overall Spanish record set by Leo Beenhakker during his time in command of Real Madrid back in the 1988-89 season.
