The absence of the 32-year-old will be a major loss to Barcelona who are already deprived of injured defender Gerard Pique and Jordi Alba.
Turkish international star Arda Turan wished his team-mate – who he refers to as his ‘idol’ and the the ‘great captain’ – a speedy recovery and shared a picture of the Spanish international alongside a lengthy message.
Gran capitán, mi ídolo..! Espero que recuperes rapido. Gran trabajo gran victoria. Vamos. Visca Barca!!!. Büyük kaptan en kısa zamanda iyilesşirsin… cok onemli galibiyet tebrikler takım…!!! Big captain my idol get well soon to continue our journey to victory-great win today brothers- congratulations, love u all!!
Turan was himself ruled out of the 3-2 win over Valencia due to a bruised elbow but he is expected to return in time for the next set of games.
