Rakitic ponders his current professional life and his adjustment to the team
In this second part of Ivan Rakitic’s interview, the Croatian midfielder shows his knowledge of Barça’s style of play and shares how thrilled he is to become a part of that.
He has also reminded us that some Croatian footballers played with Barça and it wasn’t easy for them, so Ivan wants to give a new image to his fellow countrymen so that they can be proud.
He has also talked about his awareness of the extreme competition that he will have in the first team, since Barça usually has the best players in the world. But this motivates him to give his best, help the team and continue learning. He feels confident because he can tell he is at the peak of his career and still has some space left to get to the top of it.
Regarding his adjustment, he says it will be easy because he has been in La Liga for three years now and he knows his teammates, his manager and the stadium and he knows what everyone expects from him. Therefore, it is an advantage when it comes to understand better what happens at Barça.
