Rakitic: Every game is special

Ivan Rakitic enjoyed the Joan Gamper Trophy win over Roma after scoring a spectacular goal, but insisted ‘every goal and every game is special.’

Rakitic was named Man of the Match for his display and speaking after the final whistle, warned Barca can’t believe they’ve nothing left to do for the new season.

“To introduce ourselves like this is nice. We’re prepared for every match and today the goals flowed,” he said, Marca reports.

“We have to keep working well but it is important to win. We still have a lot to do to maintain this version. We’ll work to improve. We were good technically and we’re happy but we’ll work to improve.

“It’s an honour to wear this shirt, to defend these values in a packed stadium like today. Every game is something special. Every goal is special.”
