Diego: Arda leaving would be mistake

Former Atletico Madrid midfielder Diego believes that Arda Turan would be making a mistake if he were to leave the club.

The Turkish international's agent is quoted as saying that his client is looking to leave the capital club, with rumours that Arsenal and Liverpool could be interested in his services.

But the Wolfsburg playmaker has claimed that the 25-year-old would be foolish to depart Vicente Calderon.

“Arda is a very creative player,” he told AS. “There are not many players like him around.

“He should definitely continue at Atletico. If he leaves, I think he will be making a mistake.”

The Brazil international then commented on the team's impressive start to the season which has seen them win 13of their first 17 League games.

“The team is having a brilliant season,” he said. “They are streaking ahead of their rivals in the table but they have to keep up the good work.

“They have been doing brilliantly.”
