Rakitic said he had a heated argument with referee Jair Marrufo after he insulted him three times during the win in Miami.
He explained: “People who know me are aware that it is difficult to wind me up but the referee did.
“He insulted me quite strongly three times. I usually have a lot of respect for them but when they don’t show it to me, then I don’t like it.”
Rakitic added: “There is still a little to go but I think it has been a positive tour. The games have had a good rhythm and we have worked hard in training. When you win then you always enjoy it more.”
