Ivan Rakitic: The Great New Talent
Posted March 9, 2007on:
Ivan Rakitić (born March 10 , 1988 in Möhlin ) is a young Swiss – Croatian footballer who as of 2006 plays for FC Basel in the Swiss Super League . He plays as a midfielder.
Rakitić is signed with Basel until the 2008 season. He has previously competed with the Swiss under-17 national football team. He has until 2009 (when he turns 21) or sooner to decide whether to become eligible for the Swiss national team or the Croatian national team . Rakitić was part of Basel’s 2006 UEFA Cup run to the competition’s quarter-finals.
Ivan Rakitic says his heart still beats for Croatia. Hopefully he will make the right decision and make us proud. There is a good chance that he will join the Croatian squad because of the great success they have been having. His team mate Mladen Petric made the right decision, hopefully Ivan will too.
Rakitic is a great talent. He has been linked with Juventus, and Chelsea. Now the only question is, will he be dedicated to Croatian National team.
The Croatian public doesnt want a person to join the national team, if he has to think about. Playing for the croatian national team is not a job, but its an honor, and a religion. Its Croatian culture.
