Arda Turan x Barcelona | Football needs numbers

Having signed for Barcelona in the summer, Arda Turan had to wait patiently before he could grace the pitch in a Barcelona shirt. In celebrating his debut, the club and Nike released a short video to announce his shirt number.

Affirming his high held place in the squad, giving him the number 7 is a significant sign as to where Arda Turan sits in the squad. Not short on creativity, this sharp video and poignant artwork celebrates the journey from Bayrampaşa to Barcelona - a dream come reality for this flagship player.

Some description

What's more, Barcelona held no prisoners as they ran out 4-1 victors. A debut to remember for sure and the start of a fresh legacy on the pitch for Arda Turan. A headline number for a playmaking maverick - deliciously minimal type on that shirt too.

Looking for fresh football threads for 2016, an Arda Turan Barca shirt seems like the ideal place to start.
