Raquel responded in comments and said that even if the situation is like that her Man doesn’t give up, he is an example of consistency, wisdom and professionalism.
Lack of playing time for Rakitic
Since he joined Barca he has always been committed to the club, gives 100% and he has never expressed desire to leave.
In exchange Rakitic’s name is always in the news, especially rumors keeping him away from the club and being on lists of transferable players and those to be involved in player exchanges.
In the whole summer transfer window Rakitic’s name was under speculation
Last season Rakitic played more games than any other Barca midfielder but this season it is different.
Even some match days his name is left out yet he is not injured.
Many other players like Arturo Vidal also deserve to start but they have no numbers.
Is it love lost between Rakitic and the coach?
Valverde has always said that competition is high and that all players will get their time to play.
The whole unfairness according to Ivan’s People is all about getting limited playing time which to me is not news.
His name was always in the news because he was seen as a surplus to requirement at Barca after the acquisition of Frenkie de Jong from Ajax.
Journalists even asked Ivan whether he would get playing time after the arrival of the young Dutch midfielder and he said that he was sure he had not come to take his number.
This means Rakitic knew about the competition ahead of him and decided to stay at Camp Nou and compete.
Those who knew they might not get enough playing time the likes of Dennis Suarez and Rafinha looked elsewhere and yet to me Rafinha would play ahead of Rakitic.
This means Rakitic should be calm and stay professional as the unprofessional wife has said and fight for his number.
Show impact whenever you are brought on to the pitch you will always get playing time, you can ask Ansuman Fati.
Many other players are also rumored to transfer in all windows and Ousmane Dembele is one of them.
Rakitic and Raquel love story
He had failed to sleep due to the madness that was involved in his transfer, another team wanted to give him a private plane so as to sign for them.
Rakitic told his brother that he was going to stay in Seville and sign for Sevilla as he had assured the club president.
It was love at first sight because when he saw Raquel who was the waitress at the place where they had gone for the coffee he assured his brother that he was going to marry her.
This waitress was not easy as it took seven months for her to accept dating Ivan as she always gave lots of excuses to the Barcelona midfielder.
The Croatian added that he always went to the Restaurant daily ordering for coffee and an orange Fanta because they were the only things he knew in Spanish.
He would ask for Coffee with extra hot milk so as to be able to stay longer in the restaurant.
When the real love story started they would communicate with gestures and yet understood each other.
The beautiful waitress was always busy at work until the day a friend tipped Rakitic and told him that she was off.
The World cup finalist jumped straight into the car and drove to the Restaurant and asked to take her out because she was free.
She accepted and went out with him the next day and since then they became one.
They got married in 2011 in a civil marriage and renewed vows in 2015 in Church Marriage in Seville.
While in training he would take her somewhere enjoys life and after training they went home.
She had refused to date him because of being a footballer that he might move to another Country the next year but thank God he only changed cities from Seville to Barcelona.
Ivan and Raquel are married with two daughters Althea and Adara
