Ivan Rakitic Not Happy With His Scoring Record For Barcelona

Ivan Rakitic has voiced his frustrations over his lack of goals this season.

The Croatian opened his account for the season in the 1-0 win over Athletic Bilbao. His 71st-minute winner helped Barcelona move clear of Real Madrid by three points.

Rakitic was annoyed that it took him this long to score his first goal of the campaign. He said, “We struggled a lot to get into the game, it wasn’t easy, but I was very happy to score my first goal of the season.

“I want to dedicate my goal to my wife and my daughters who have put up with me so much in the last few months. It’s very strange that I’ve taken so long to score. I’m annoyed with myself, although I’m happy to have helped the team.”

“It’s very difficult to win LaLiga, that’s why we say it’s the best league in the world,” he said. “There are very even and tough games.”

Barcelona regained their spot at the top of the La Liga but only for the time being. Real Madrid face off against Mallorca on Wednesday night after beating Real Sociedad 2-1. If they win, they go back to the top due to their superior head-to-head record against the Blaugrana.
