As the move to Sevilla confirmed by both the player and club Rakitic opens up his thoughts on his former club.Before this deal was complete he was the player with most caps playing for the catalans but only behind messi. Even Suarez is 27 match less on the list. Rakitic said the years with barcelona was beautiful and he dont celebrate if he happens to score against the club.The numbers quickly added to his achievement list since he started the journey in 2014.310 matches across all competitions for the club and also scoring in the Champions League final in 2015 is an absolutely wonderful.
The 2019 season was the only exception which he failed to complete 50 matches only able to finish 42 games.When we pick most appeared foreign players for FC Barcelona in its history rakitic is placed at number four.Other players who tops the table are Lionel Messi,Javier Mascharano and Dani Alves.The Croatian with utmost confidence said that he gave his whole heart during the six year period.
Not happy when says about putting him as a market product to bring Neymar back from PSG.The management was not only has problems with Messi but with other players too but many wont discuss it public unless it is necessary.like his compatriot Luka Modric who playing for Real Madrid Rakitic was equal to him in Barcelona.The history will count him as a legend not because he played too many games, then guess what? It takes hardwork and true talent to survive in a world class team like Barcelona this long.
