Barcelona fans react to Arda Turan being dropped ahead of Valencia clash on social media
Barcelona take on Valencia in the La Liga on Sunday 19 March hoping to get their title race back on track after a disappointing defeat against Deportivo last week.
Barca manager Luis Enrique made a few changes to the side that lost against Deportivo last week, most notably dropping Arda Turan.
Enrique has yet to disclose why Turan was left out of the match day squad.
The Turkish international attacking midfielder started last week in the loss against Deportivo after recovering from an adductor injury.
Barcelona fans seemed quite confused as to why he was left out of the side for such an important game.
We took a look at how Barcelona fans reacted to Turan’s display on social media.
Nobody seems to quite know yet why Turan was dropped.
Excluded: Masip, Arda Turan, Mathieu (technical decisions) and Aleix Vidal (injured).
