The midfielder will captain Turkey in tonight's friendly against Italy.
He said, “When I return to Italy I need to focus on my club and the league. As soon as I come back we'll play against Juve, Milan are leading the table but we're one game behind.
“I hope that, when I come back, we'll be able to take the lead thanks to victories.
“I am aware of the responsibility of captain, I hope to wear it with pride. Everyone should take responsibility, me above all because I have been wearing this shirt since 2015. The clock is ticking."
