The smiling photograph of Ivan Rakitic at the Feria de Sevilla after Barcelona's loss to Liverpool continues to have repercussions.
According to Diario AS, the Croatian heard supporters outside his house criticising him and went out to have a conversation with them.
The report adds that the fans were members of the Boixos Nois who wanted to complain about his public showing after the humiliation at Anfield.
Rakitic went out to offer them explanations, revealing that he was in Seville for family reasons and it was never his intention to offend the fans.
He also told them that he asked for the photo to be deleted once he realised it had been shared on social media.
The members of the Boixos Nois asked for a better attitude and more committment in what remains of the campaign.
