Ivan Rakitic again had minutes after spending the last two games on the bench. The Croatian jumped into the field for Frenkie de Jong in the second half and the Camp Npu received him with a loud ovation
The FC Barcelona won to Valencia with relative comfort and Ernesto Valverde decided that it was the moment to take out to heat to Ivan Rakitic. The Croat, that did not play with the Barça from the debut of League in Bilbao, received a small ovation when it began to exercise in the band of the stadium. Even they listened chants encouraging him by his delicate situation in the club.
But at all of this compares with the enormous ovation that the Camp Nou gave him when it jumped to the terrain of game in the minute 70. The midfield player went out by Frenkie of Jong, that has removed him his place in the eleven, and the public wanted to receive him with win to encourage him after having lost his status in the team.
The Balkan went back to play after not to have it fact neither in front of the Betis neither in front of the Osasuna and during 20 minutes gave it everything in the terrain of game. Rakitic Always has left clear his love to the Barcelona and to the Barcelona fans, but after this summer all has changed. The club wanted to plant him in the operation Neymar, he bothered , wanted to go out to the Juventus and then was the club the one who did not put eases to his course.
The relation between the Barça and the footballer are going through a bad patch, but the fans has not forgotten of one of the big artífices of the successes of the Barcelona of the last years. The mediocampista was key for the triplete with Luis Enrique and also has been decisive in these last two Leagues with Ernesto Valverde. A 'Txingurri' that, by the way, has displaced him of the team in a tremendously surprising decision.
Valverde Has left to have Rakitic
In spite of the arrival of Of Jong, expected that the trainer barcelonista followed explaining regularly with the ex sevillista. But in four parties of League, the Croat only has played 65 minutes divided in two crashes. Perhaps, these minutes against Valencia and this ovation of the Camp Nou can be a turning point of face to his future in the Barça.
It is impossible that Valverde displace of the eleven to Of Jong or to Busquets to put to Rakitic. Neither it seems that Arthur go to go próximamente of the initial alignment after chaining two partidazos followed in front of Osasuna and Valencia. But the ex of the Seville himself could begin to compete of you to you with Sergi Roberto to be the fourth option in the centre of the field.
