Barcelona great Iniesta: Rakitic must stay

Barcelona great Andres Iniesta says Ivan Rakitic shouldn't be allowed to leave.

The midfielder is expected to be sold in January.

But Vissel Kobe star Iniesta told Marca, "I would not let him go, he is a great player.

“What he has been doing during all this time has been magnificent.

"This year he is not having the prominence he had before but that does not mean that he is not a great player."
