Ivan Rakitic believes Barcelona deserves to be LaLiga champions if they are top and the season cannot be finished due to coronavirus.
Barcelona were top on the laliga table before league games were suspended due to the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus pandemic.
With only 11 games left to be played, the Spanish giants are 2 points ahead of their rivals Real Madrid, on the laliga table.
Rakitic is of the opinion that the league leaders should be crowned champions if the Spanish league can’t be concluded
“We all want to play again and to win the league by playing,” he told Movistar+
“I also understand that if we can’t go back somehow, the season will have to end. If we are at the top then we will have to be the champions, but deadlines must be exhausted.
“The ideal scenario would be to finish whenever, but always with a well-made plan, especially considering next season too,” he added
The 32-year-old has seen his playing time decrease since the arrival of Frankie de jong in October 2019 and has been linked with a move away from Camp Nou.
But Rakitic has denied that he is unhappy in Barcelona, with a year left in his contract you never know his next move.
“I don’t want to give the feeling of being angry or anything like that. It’s not like that.”I’m calm and happy where I am, but of course there are two sides and we want to do things well.”
Spain remains on lockdown as the number of confirmed cases continues to rise, with 198,674 and over 20.000 Deaths as of Monday 20th 2020.
