Passed by FC Barcelona for six seasons between 2014 and 2020, Sevilla FC midfielder Ivan Rakitic returned to the appointment of his former teammate Xavi Hernandez as head of Barça’s first team. The two men had indeed known each other during the Croatian’s first season in Catalonia, during which they achieved the historic treble (Liga, Copa del Rey and Champions League).
In an interview with beIN Sports, the international with 106 caps (15 goals) praises the signing of the former coach of Al Sadd (Qatari D1): “You know the relationship I had with Xavi. I wish him the best. I think this is great news, not only for Barca but also for LaLiga. (…) Honestly, I would have liked to work and learn a little more from him. I only spent a year with him. ”
