The Croatian believes that Guardiola's spirit is still at Barça

Little by little Ivan Rakitic has made a place in Luis Enrique's schemes. The midfielder wants to give his best version without trying to look like any other player. "I don't know to dribble like Messi, nor pass the ball like Iniesta. I simply have to be Ivan," he said to Sport Bild.

Actually, the Croatian has conceided statements to the German paper either to L'Équipe. These are his most highlighted statements:

Champions League qualifying round against PSG

"We have to be ready in all the zones of the field and well organized to pressure."

"We improved in the goals coincided in free kicks -from the first-leg match in Paris to the group stage,- but apart from being a strong team in strategy moves they also have to know to touch the ball."

Would you like to face Bayern in Champions League later? 

"No way!"

Pep Guardiola

"Pep is somehow present in Barça. We are currently compared to his Barça and they talk about his success in Bayern. Sure, he's one of the best coaches in the world."

"I chose number 4 for Guardiola, although he had a little different role. Anyway it's an honor for me to wear his number in Barça."
