Barcelona despite being dumped out of the UEFA Champions League by Roma are still having a brilliant season.
Speaking after Barca's 5-0 Copa del Rey final triumph over Sevilla, in which Iniesta scored the fourth goal, Rakitic expressed his desire to see his team-mate stick around.
"I feel good but I am aware that at big teams when there is an elimination there is a cataclysm", he said.
The veteran midfielder is considering a move to the Chinese Super League and this could be his last cup final for Barcelona - and he made sure it was one to remember.
Speaking after the game, the head coach, who won the Copa del Rey as a player with Barca said: "We were eager to win the trophy, the players and the club itself".
Jets blank Wild, win playoff series for first time
But like I said, first two games we were good at it. "We knew that Game 3 wasn't our best", forward Mark Scheifele said. The Wild played for the second game in a row without left winger Zach Parise , who suffered a broken sternum in Game 3.
Suarez scored again before halftime with a low shot after picking up a great throughball by Messi and fending off a defender while entering the area.
Ivan Rakitic is desperate for Andres Iniesta to quash speculation over his Barcelona future and commit to remaining at the club where he has established himself as "one of the greatest players in history".
He also stressed that Sevilla acted too timidly. There are very strong emotions, the affection and respect that people have for me is something that I am very much grateful for. It gives a unusual feeling because we were eliminated in the Champions League and this gives me the impression that we could have gone further in the competition.
"On Tuesday at the board meeting we will take the decisions".
