Croatian international Ivan Rakitić is showing in pre-season friendlies why Barcelona were so persistent in signing him…
Rakitić is set to play a key role in Barcelona’s star-studded midfield this season, and yesterday the former Seville captain set up two goals as Barcelona romped to victory in a friendly against HJK Helsinki. Rakitić came on in the second half and immediately made an impact, setting up two goals in Barcelona’s 6-0 win. Fellow Croatian Alen Halilović, who is impressing coaching staff, also played 30 minutes in yesterday’s match.
