Ivan Rakitic Has Upset Barcelona Fans With His Recent Instagram Post

Ivan Rakitic has landed himself in hot water with Barcelona fans after uploading a picture of himself 'disrespecting' Lionel Messi on Instagram.

The Croatian midfielder took to Instagram to remember his side's 3-0 victory over Argentina at the 2018 World Cup, a game which Rakitic scored in.

But the 32-year-old chose to remember the game by posting a variety of pictures - one of which includes him leaving Messi on the floor.

Rakitic is an already maligned figure at the Nou Camp with many fans believing his six year stay at the club should come to an end in the summer.

Messi is adored by Barcelona fans and it's fair to say they haven't reacted well on social media.

The fortunes of both men varied hugely in Russia that summer.

Messi's Argentina scraped through to the round of 16 and were knocked out by eventual winners France.

Croatia, meanwhile, made it to the final against 'Les Bleus' after a remarkable run which saw them defeat England in the semi-finals.
