It is not the most used in the staff of the FC Barcelona, but up to now had played it everything. Ivan Rakitic is the only Barcelona footballer to the that Ernesto Valverde has demanded for all and each one of his commitments, but at last will rest in the Glass
Since it arrived to the FC Barcelona has revolutionised the way to manage the changing room, but Ernesto Valverde has left very clear in hardly some months those who are his men of confidence. In the Barcelona staff there is a few intocables, and only is necessary to look his statistics to know which is the eleven type.
In him it appears safe Ivan Rakitic, to the that the arrival of Paulinho has put has proof but has not left in the forget not even for one moment. The Croatian midfield player is the sixth more used footballer of the team, but is the only that has participated always, in all the commitments since it began the season. Until this Wednesday.
To the ex of the Seville has touched him rid and take a deserved rest in the duel copero against the Real Murcia, in an eliminatory that is almost solved and in which it already participated in the party of gone. In total, have been 21 consecutive meetings those that has contested the one of Mölin, with 2 apparitions in the Supercopa, 13 in Laliga, 5 in the Champions and 1 in the Glass of Rey.

Although the past summer arrived some reinforcements to the Camp Nou, would not be descartable that the Barça went back to move in the market of winter, of face to give a jump of quality that would increase the possibilities to compete by all the titles, especially in the Champions League.
There are some members of the changing room, between which include Andrés Iniesta or the own Ivan Rakitic, to which is costing them bear the requirement and the load of parties, something that notices in the bajón that is used to to present the team in the second halves, as it happened against the Seville or Valencia. In the City Condal there is a lot of class, but some reinforcement of maximum level never is of more.
