Ivan Rakitic has uploaded a video discussing his favorite Barcelona legends, and he certainly doesn’t sound like a player with any intention of leaving.

Rakitic called Barceloan “the biggest club” in the world as he talked about his favorite legends.

They are: Johan Cruyff, Ronald Koeman, Ronaldo de Lima, Romario, and Robert Prosinecki.

Why didn’t he pick Ronaldinho? Carles Puyol? Xavi? Andres Iniesta? Lionel Messi?

Well, I think he was just picking ones that inspired him when he was a kid. The most recent one on his list is Ronaldo, and he left Barcelona while Rakitic was about 10 years old.

Also, Robert Prosinecki is a weird pick, but he must have picked him because they are both Croatian. Prosinecki actually played more at Real Madrid than Barcelona, where he spent only one season. Well, same as Ronaldo but ... come on!
