Arda SER

Arda Turan gave an interview in the radio program of Cadena SER "Què t'hi jugues", in which he went back on his first months as a blaugrana. The Turk talked about the greatest motivation of the team, which is to win the second Champion's League in a row. He also talked about his idol, Iniesta, and the fact of playing against Atlético.

Motivation

"The thing we talk the most about in the dressing room and that motivates us the most is to try to win the second Champion's League in a row."

Luis Enrique

"Simeone is a coach more demanding on defense and Luis Enrique on attack."

"Luis Enrique added his touch of aggressiveness to Barça's culture. This makes the team better and stronger."

"Luis Enrique speaks a lot with the players and with me as well. Communication is habitual."

The trident

"Suárez is a joker, Messi is quiet but he is the boss, and Neymar is my brother."

Xavi

"Xavi is one of the best in history. I will never be able to be like him, even if I changed my style of play."

Iniesta

"Iniesta is my idol, you enjoy seeing him play. Messi is the best in history, but Iniesta has no equal."

Messi

"When you play with Messi, it is a different football. You can always tell when he is missing. The next one to do a similar career as his will be Neymar."

The transfer

"There were various offers, but when Barça came, I didn't think it, although I had to wait 6 months to play."

Atlético Madrid

"When we play against Atlético, I'll think it's only 3 more points to not be blocked by feelings."

"I'm more eager to play against Real Madrid than against Atlético."

Turkey

"I help the neighbours financially when they need it in the area where I was born. And not only for water and electricity."

Initiation jokes

"They haven't pulled any practical joke on me because they fear I throw a shoe at them!"
