The departure of big names from LaLiga has left a void difficult to fill, accept Ivan Rakitic, but that gap is also an opportunity for other players or teams in the Spanish tournament to jump to touch that post.
“We must all make them forget, even if it is impossible, with play, be very attractive, make new stars and it is everyone’s obligation to fill that void left by them”, Ivan Rakitic analyzes the next step that the Spanish competition must take after the departure of names Like the ones of Leo messi O Sergio Ramos.
What feeling and what do you think of everything that is said about LaLiga, that it runs out of figures, that it loses shine with the departure of Messi or Ramos?
Honestly when we talk about those names, well we have to agree, the first time, because they are players who have marked many years in LaLiga, in their teams, they are like emblems, that’s the way it is.
They are idols and examples for all of us, it is a pity that they are not there, but that will not change the importance or the greatness of our League, of what we represent in the world, especially because they have given so much. For me it is a shame that they have left, but we must respect their decision and wish them luck. And then it is an opportunity for everyone else, that whenever one leaves another has to come, a possibility opens up and we have to be prepared and do our best, make them forget, even if it is impossible, with play, be very attractive, do new stars and it is everyone’s obligation to fill that void left by them.
The return of the fans to the stands, how did you experience it?
The truth is incredible. Hearing our people jump, sing our hymn, it’s incredible, it’s what we feel the most. To feel that again is amazing. The truth is that I am very happy, because that means that in general we are controlling the very difficult situation that we are going through all over the world, that is positive.
How has Spanish football changed from when you started to now?
It has changed, like football in general. Now small teams are not so small and can play a very important role. I think that has changed a lot and it is very interesting for football and this will continue to grow and there will be a very important equality.
What would you change or what improvements would you make to football?
I understand that we are all looking for an improvement (in terms of business and entertainment), in the end we have to do what is good for everyone and for us the important thing is that we take good care of ourselves, because I think that the calendar, for the moment, does not He is the best, but hey, in the end our thing is to dedicate ourselves to playing, and to be able to make all football fans enjoy.
