In an interview with Marca on Thursday Ivan Rakitic who is Barcelona’s midfielder, stated that he is ready to take risk of coronavirus infection and wants to return to the field.
He respects everyone’s opinion, they have seen that the French league which is one of the most important in the world, has canceled a sequel.
Rakitic said to Spanish newspaper, “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.”
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” Ivan added.
