Barcelona fans react to Arda Turan display against Gijon on social media

Barcelona Arda Turan

Barcelona put five past Sporting Gijon to move into second place in the La Liga on 13 points just one point behind Real Madrid.

Arda Turan filled in for Lionel Messi who is out for three weeks with a groin injury and ended up providing an assist for Luis Suarez’s opener and scored his fourth goal of the season as well.

We took a look at how Barcelona fans reacted to his display on social media.

His stats make impressive reading. Turan already has more goals and assists than he managed all of last season.

He can scored, he can assist, he can dribble! Turan had big shoes to fill in replacing Messi but he passed with flying colors.

Oh and he can pass! Turan completed 96 percent of his attempted 68 passes which makes for very impressive reading. The Turkish international also completed all five of his attempted long balls and scored with his only shot on target.

Turan had a bit of fun on Snapchat afterwards.

See the similarity?
