Barcelona star Arda Turan has wished his followers a happy Eid via his Twitter account.

The bearded winger shared the following tweet in Turkish which translates to: “I wish everyone a happy bayram. God willing everyone has a great time.”

Eid al-Adha is the second of two religious holidays celebrated by Muslims worldwide each year. The religious holiday centres around the meat from a sacrificed animal being given to the poor and needy.

Turan is busy preparing for the Turkish national teams key Euro 2016 Group A qualification games against the Czech Republic and Iceland which will determine whether the Crescent-Stars make it to the play-offs or not.

Turkey are currently in third place but need a minimum of four points to guarantee a place in the playoffs.

The 28-year-old winger is however, unable to play club football for Barcelona until the turn of the year due to the reigning La Liga champions serving a transfer ban.

The Champions League title holders recently appealed the decision but had their request overturned.
