Xavi Is Irreplaceable - Rakitic

He appreciates being compared to Barcelona captain, Xavi but 26-year-old Croatian, Ivan Rakitic but he has made it clear that the 34-year-old Spaniard cannot be replaced.
Rakitic wants to go down in history as one of Barcelona's great but he knows no one can be a natural successor to Xavi Hernandez who has won seven La Liga titles and three Champions League titles with the Spanish giants.

Here's what he told Sportske novosti:

"It's nice that people are saying that I am the successor of Xavi but I'm Rakitic. Replacements for such a great player like Xavi don't exist," 
"I can't wait to start the Primera [Liga]. We worked a lot [in per-season] and I hope that this will show on the field. Barcelona are powerful again.

"I always wanted to join Barcelona. It was my desire."

Barcelona begin their La Liga campaign on Sunday against Elche
