Arda Turan would have got the chance to face his former Atletico Madrid teammates Diego Costa, Falcao and Courtois had he played but the FIFA transfer ban imposed on Barcelona meant that the bearded winger had to watch from the sidelines.
The Turkish international did however, get to reunited with his former teammate Costa after the final whistle and the duo walked off the pitch into the tunnel together.
The reunion party was captured by a fan who goes by the twitter handle @WiseGuy_19 who had the pleasure of capturing the moment.
Costa and Turan played a key role in Atleti winning the 2014 La Liga title and reaching the Champions League final the same season.
The Spanish international recently revealed that he is missing Turan’s kebabs: “He introduced us all to Turkish food. I really liked his kebabs and when he had food everybody would hover around his house for some.”
