Many footballers have taken to Instagram to document their lives in a photo-blogging style. It has given them the chance to be closer to the fans with regular updates on their training sessions, holidays, fancy cars and beautiful women. There is no ‘right way’ to join a Social Media platform and announce yourself, but Atletico Madrid’s Arda Turan has taken the closest approach to the ‘right way’.
As we write this, Turan still has only two pictures put up. He doesn’t have any with fancy cars, fancy women, fancy houses or anything of that superstar sort, but rather, his first image is of his parents with the words “My family is my life”. Now one may argue that the helicopter in the background heeds to the ‘superstar’ bit, but we’ll ignore that and praise him for remembering his parents before taking a big step into the Social Media world, although they probably couldn’t help him figure out how to save pictures on instagram. It’s a lovely shot though.
He then posted an image of his team-mates, probably the other most important part of his life, as they jetted off back to Madrid following pre-season training in Mexico.
But the real ‘style’ came into play when his team-mates welcomed him onto Instagram with more recent images. Sporting a ‘mantastic’ beard, Arda Turan added shades to his look to appear as someone right out of a Hollywood setting.
As the images posted suggest, Turan wasn’t an equal footballer in the Atletico squad, nah! He seemed like a superstar well above his coutner-parts. The other players in the Atletico squad were just lucky to have the chance of grabbing a snap with Mr. Hollywood.
