Ivan Rakitic is clearly not having the best of times over at the Catalan capital.
The Croatian midfielder went from being Ernesto Valverde’s most-used player of the previous campaign, to just a guy who makes a cameo appearance for Barcelona here and there.

Just the fact that he 31-year-old has only 255 minutes under his belt in the ongoing campaign tells its own story and for that reason, his latest words don’t really come as a surprise.
Rakitic talked to Movistar+ and stated how he feels sad because of his current situation.
Of course, upon hearing his words, many of the Barcelona fans didn’t really feel sympathy but slammed the Croat, reminding him of his bad performances, especially the one from Anfield in the Champions League, and posted some other harsh comments.
It seems that he is not really one of the fan-favourites at the Camp Nou.

He could have left Barca on better terms. But he grew such an ego that he thought he could bench either Arthur or De Jong.

I’m sorry Rakitic, but you make too many mistakes. Time for you to go.
