Ivan Rakitic​ has happened in only some months to be indisputable for Ernesto Valverde to be a simple player of rotation. The Croat has been a member stood out of the policeman of the 'Txingurri' and of Luis Enrique since it arrived to the FC Barcelona, but the years happen for all and right now the trainer extremeño prefers to bet by the youth of Frenkie of Jong and of Arthur Melo.

He same recognised does some days that goes to try give him the turn to the situation to play more, but that is frustrated by the minutes that is having. "This is being difficult and hard because I want to play and not being only splits of the team. I will do all the possible for treating to change the things in the next parties. They remain me two years of agreement and there is not better place that the Barcelona to play, the best club of the world, but need to play and not enjoying of walks by the city and by the sea", admitted.

To the midfield player sees him turned off and no longer has the joy that was used to to have does some months when it jumped to the field. Precisely therefore, for him it could have been very important this stop of selections. The ex of the Seville has gone with Croatia and this past Thursday was headline and went back to smile in a terrain of game after enough without doing it.

The mediocampista of the Barça was headline and played 74 minutes before being substituted by Nikola Vlasic. The Croats surpassed to Hungary by 3-0 with a so much of the madridista Luka Modric, that opened the marker, and two of Bruno Petkovic. The Barcelona did not go of the most stood out, but had a remarkable performance and showed that it can follow playing to the highest level.

The seleccionador Balkan trusts blindly in Rakitic and goes to be followed having he although it was not headline in the Barcelona. To the ex sevillista saw him smile in a lot of occasions before, during and after the meeting, something that says a lot of how felt after these weeks playing very little in the Barça.

Arturo Vidal, also by in front of him

The parties against the Inter of Milan and the Seville have showed that, to day of today, Arturo Vidal also is by in front of the Croatian for Ernesto Valverde. The Chilean has surrendered very well in both crashes after beginning playing still less than Rakitic, and does not seem that it go to leave to explain for the technician próximamente. The one of Möhlin goes to have to arm of patience if it wants to have, at least, a place stood out in the rotation of the 'Txingurri'.
