Ivan Rakitic was one of the many FC Barcelona players for whom an open doors training session was a new experience. After working out in front of almost packed Miniestadi, the Croatian said “me and Marc-André ter Stegen were talking about how incredible it is to see a stadium packed to watch a training session.”

Speaking to Barça TV, the midfielder added that “this is a very special day. If we can bring some joy to the people, so much the better. I think it’s important for the people to feel close to us. It’s been a very special day, very nice.”

Rakitic was asked whether he wants anything special for King’s Day. “The most important thing is not something you can give as a gift” he said. “That’s health. But today is an important for spending with the family.”
