• Offside magazine (Issue 9, Summer 2012): Hace un año, la FIFA multó a Vlatko Markovic, presidente de la Federación de fútbol croata, por declarar que “de ninguna manera podría jugar un homosexual en la selección” y que “afortunadamente, el fútbol sólo lo juega la gente sana”. ¿Has compartido vestuario con algún jugador homosexual? Que opinas al respecto?
  • Ivan Rakitić: Respeto a los homosexuales, pero no quiero a esa gente en el vestuario. No me marcharía de un equipo por eso, porque respeto igual a un homosexual que a un negro, un gordo o un enano, pero de ser posible prefiero no tener a gays en mi vida.
  • Rough English translation: Respect to homosexuals, but I do not want those people in the locker room. I would not leave a team for that, because I equally respect homosexuals, blacks, a fat person or a dwarf, but if possible I'd rather not have gays in my life.
