Arda Turan admitted that he is looking forward to playing against Hakan Çalhanoğlu and Ömer Toprak in the Champions League when Atletico Madrid take on Bayer Leverkusen in the Last 16.
“I wish Hakan Çalhanoğlu and Ömer Toprak the best of luck,” Turan said.
“I will be playing against my brothers and it will be a tough game, Leverkusen have some really good players.”
Turan also revealed that he is not looking to return to Turkey at this stage in his career.
“I am not considering moving back to Turkey until the end of my career,” Turan said.
