Ivan Rakitic was in charge of speaking at the foot of the field after Barça-Eibar and did not hesitate to get wet on the whistles and the cloth against Bartomeu before the crash. The Croatian also talked about Martin Braithwaite, who debuted with the Catalans
Leo Messi was the big protagonist of the victory of the FC Barcelona against the Eibar when marking four of the five goals of his team. The '10' was soberbio in all the senses and won the meeting practically only. Quique Setién did rotations thinking in the Champions League and in the Classical and went out to the green of start players like Arturo Vidal or Ivan Rakitic, that are far to be indisputable headlines.
Precisely the Croatian midfield player was the attendant to speak with the microphones of Movistar+ after the crash. The journalist did not doubt in asking him to the Balkan by the whistles, the pañolada and the cries of resignation that the fans devoted him to Josep Maria Bartomeu. The ex sevillista left clear that is in favour that the fans can say what want. "There is freedom so that each one say what him apetezca", commented.
Besides, the one of Rheinfelden, Switzerland, wanted to clear that, in spite of the whistles and the complaints to the president, the footballers have felt the support of the Camp Nou at all times. "We have felt the support of the fans, that today has enjoyed of a big team. There was a very important environment, with a lot of support for us", declared.
Although the protests against Bartomeu and the poker of Messi carry all the covers, also was the afternoon of Martin Braithwaite, that debuted. The Danish participated in the 4-0 and the 5-0 and left very good feelings. Rakitic Wanted to give him the welcome and elogió his arrival and his qualities. "It is a forward with a lot of strength, that goes to the depth and this perhaps was missing us a poquito. It is a player that goes to add a lot by the team. It gladdened me by him because it is a good boy and wanted to give him a good welcome", admitted.
Praises to Messi and to the team
The ex of the Seville, as it could not be of another way, agreed also of Messi, that was the big star of the day. The Argentinian carried four parties followed without marking in LaLiga and broke his bad series to the big in front of the eibarreses. "In all these weeks was near to mark. It is important that was well, that was fine and if it is as today as much better for us", ensured.
Finally, the Balkan elogió the game of his team and the way in which they faced the commitment against the armeros, that went out to presionar almost so up like the Getafe the past week. "I think that we have done a big work from the first minute and are very happy. We knew that it went to be a party complicated by the high pressure that is used to to do the Eibar", concluded.
