He’s walked right into a void produced by Luis Enrique’s decision just to walk away, with Rakitic acknowledging the outgoing coach is a big loss.
The Croatia worldwide want to believe that their pathways will mix again later on, as they remains keen on current Paris Saint-Germain boss Emery and would really like another spell under him too.
Rakitic told Marca: “I would like to work with them again, yes obviously.
“They’ve been two fundamental men within my trajectory and therefore are similar meaning that they’re in love with football and don’t want to lose – ever. Even at marbles.
“Luis Enrique is an extremely important loss, he demonstrated lots of curiosity about getting me to Barcelona and provided all his confidence in the past 3 years.Inch

Rakitic spent 3 years with Sevilla between 2011 and 2014, winning the Europa League in the final campaign.
Then he linked track of Barca and it has gone onto make 159 appearances for that Catalan giants, helping these to two La Liga titles along with a Champions League crown – getting scored within the final against Juventus in 2015.
The 29-year-old committed to a different four-year contract in March, so the likelihood of him linking track of Luis Enrique or Emery again in the near future are slim unless of course either takes charge at Barca.
