Barcelona beat Spanish giants Atletico Madrid 2-1 at the Camp Nou yesterday but that was not the only cause for jubilation as Arda Turan celebrated his 29th birthday.

Neymar took to his Instagram account to wish Turan a happy birthday and shared a picture posing with sunglasses alongside the bearded winger – who appears to be wearing a similar pair.

Barcelona also joined in the fun sending a tweet out in several language including English, Spanish, Catalan and Turkish along with his very own hashtag #ARDA29.

Turan did not start against his former club Atletico Madrid yesterday but he did make a second half appearance replacing Ivan Rakitic.

The Turkish international star managed to celebrate his 29th birthday with a win but he may have had mixed emotions considering he spent the last three seasons at the Rojiblancos.

Turan has had a busy January. The 29-year-old was finally registered as a Barcelona player at the start of the month receiving the number 7 shirt number and then made his debut against Espanyol in the Spanish Cup.

Barcelona have won all seven games since Turan made his debut for the club and he already has two assists to his name.
