The international break has given us time to think about and discuss key Barcelona topics. Which of course means it’s time to dig up any old rivalries that we hope are taking place in the team. This time around, discussions about the relationship between Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann is back in the forefront.
A former teammate of both players, Ivan Rakitic, was asked about the relationship between the two. Like you would expect from Rakitic, it was a calm and careful answer.
“What I saw was that they got along very well. I got along wonderfully with [both] Antoine and Leo. The two drink mate together and spend a lot of time together in the dressing room.
“If the 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.”
