Arsenal fans lay into Barcelona’s Arda Turan after he said Gunners were his plan B [Tweets]

Turkish star Arda Turan has spoken to Spanish paper Diari Ara this week, and the Barcelona midfielder described how Arsenal were his plan B if a move to the Camp Nou never materialised.

Responding to a question about when he knew he was going to sign with Barcelona, Arda Turan made the following comment:

I felt that I would sign for Barca. In all honesty I used to think, ‘If I play very well I will end up signing for Barca, because my style fits into this team. If I play well, I will end up at Arsenal’.

While Arsenal may be third in the current Premier League table, and having been turfed out of the Champions League by Barca, their fans are still unhappy with Turan’s disparaging quote.

Gooners are upset that their club have been made to look second rate. Is that because the truth hurts?

Turan has gone on to make 14 appearances for Barca this season, scoring twice.
