Atletico's Turkish dynamo bamboozled half a team in the time it takes to watch a Vine

Arda Turan makes dribbling look very, very easy.

DIEGO SIMEONE AND his band of exceptionally talented footballers have gotten a great deal of justified praise over the last few years but one man who isn’t as celebrated as some of his team-mates is Turkish international Arda Turan.

The 28-year-old joined Atletico Madrid in 2011 and has been a key part of a team that has won the La Liga, the Copa del Rey and the Europa League.

Simeone’s men could only earn a 2-2 draw away to Malaga on Saturday but Turan’s dazzling bit of ball control still stood out.

That is half the Malaga team beaten in one Vine.

As Tim Sherwood would say, that’s a good ratio.
