“We were more enthusiastic when Neymar was here, maybe this is something we lack a bit now”, Rakitic initially told Mundo Deportivo.

“If I had a magic trick, I would have him back! He is the player you would like in your team and I would certainly prefer him to be here”.

“But the truth is we are doing very well without him here and he is now in another club, so it’s not fair to talk about him anymore”.
