Arda Turan caused a stir on Wednesday night when he picked up his boot and hurled it at a linesman during Atletico Madrid’s Copa Del Rey defeat to Barcelona.
The Turkish winger lost the plot after seeing a foul in his eyes not awarded by the officials.
So, what did Turan do to take out his frustration? He launched the boot he lost in the challenge just seconds before towards the nearest linesman, missing him by just inches.
In case you missed the incident, you can see it here:

Turan celebrates his 27th birthday today – and at his party on Thursday night, the forward was given an Atletico Madrid boot CAKE to eat from his cheeky friends.

It’s good to see Turan and Atletico laugh at the situation in which he only picked up a yellow card.
And Turan was only too happy to pose next to the creative cake.
