However, Rakitic has denied this, stating that the pair do indeed get along, He said;
“What I saw was that they got along very well. I got along wonderfully with Antoine and Leo,” Rakitic told Spanish outlet El Pelotazo. “The two drinks mate together and spend a lot of time together in the dressing room.”
“If both of them start to score goals, there will be no more talk – that’s the requirement and expectation of a great team like Barcelona. I don’t worry, though, because they’re two spectacular guys. I wish them all the best. Rakitic said.
