Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic has expressed his unhappiness with the departure of star man Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain though he claims Barcelona have to respect the Brazilian's decision to leave.
The Brazilian made a stunning world record €222 million move to the French side and despite bringing in his replacement Ousmane Dembele, Rakitic believes that the club will miss a player of his quality.
Speaking to the BBC World Service, as reported by Goal, Rakitic said,
"He was really important for our dressing room, and for me he's one of the best guys I know in football.
"We have to respect Neymar's decision to move.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, Neymar's move to PSG is a bad move.. Look at him now, he misses Messi— Mash Junior (@Mashjr11) September 18, 2017
