Arda Turan shared his thoughts with Barça TV / MIGUEL RUIZ-FCB

FC Barcelona midfielder Arda Turan is set to take on his former club Atlético Madrid on Saturday (4.00pm CET) when the two sides go head-to-head at Camp Nou, and so the Turkish star spoke to Barça TV about his feelings going into the match.

“It will be a special game, unique. I believe that both before and after the game I will be nervous,” said the summer arrival, who also turns 29 years old on the day of the match.

Arda warned that “it is always difficult” to play against a highly combative Atlético side but says that Barça “will do everything to get the three points”.

The midfielder, who became a fan favourite at the Vicente Calderon, has played six games for the Catalans and is grateful to his colleagues for helping him settle into the team.

"My teammates have made me feel part of the group and I feel great both mentally and physically.”
