Barcelona: Many fans are showing no sympathy for Ivan Rakitic’s frustrations

Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic has been voicing his frustrations about the role he has been given this season, as reported by cope, via barcacentre.

Will Barcelona win La Liga this season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The midfielder has started just 1 game in all competitions this season, coming on as a substitute 5 times, getting a total of 188 minutes, as per WhoScored.

This has led to the Croatia international feeling hard done by about the way he has been treated, having received no explanation from Ernesto Valverde:

However, many Barcelona fans have absolutely no sympathy regarding the 31-year-old’s frustrations, as they feel baffled that he can’t see why this has happened, stating that he simply isn’t good enough to have a larger role.

Frenkie de Jong and Arthur have been the club’s main midfielders alongside Sergio Busquets this season, having made 9 and 6 starts in all competitions respectively – and that is how many fans suggest the pecking order should stay.

A selection of Twitter reaction to the complaints, including posts from unsympathetic Barcelona fans, can be seen below:
