On Thursday in an interview with Spanish newspaper Marca, Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic said that he wants to return to the field and is ready to risk coronavirus infection.
“I want to play. Of course, we need to get back on the field with a health guarantee, but we know it will never be 100 percent. This is the same risk that all workers now in workplaces face. and they have a higher risk of us getting infected. I, too, want to take that risk. I’m sure people want us to get back on the field and play football, “Rakitic added.
The Croatian national team player said, “I respect everyone’s opinion, we have seen that the French league, one of the most important in the world, has canceled a sequel. Every country and league has to analyze their data and needs. In the last few days, I have listened to talk about losing money if we do not continue, about the calendar, the relegation, European competitions … but no one listened to what people watching football had to say. It is time to take a step back and allow people to have fun with what they love.”
