Ivan Rakitic sends warning to Barcelona’s Champions League rivals

Ivan Rakitic has warned Barcelona’s Champions League rivals that ‘we’re not at 100 percent yet’ after their 4-0 thrashing of PSV.

“It’s not easy, this is the Champions League and also our first match against a team who have started well in their domestic League, but it’s been a game that worked out for us,” the midfielder said after the match.

“We did many things that could be enjoyed, but we have things to improve on and we have to keep working.

“You can always improve, but we’ve just started out. We talked before the game and prepared for it, but we’re not at 100 percent yet so we’ll keep working.

“Messi has an impressive left foot, I hope it stays that way and that he scores many more free kicks.”
