The 31-year-old Barcelona star accompanied the photo with the message: “A different way to train. Her and her crazy little ways.”
His Spanish WAG commented: “Our acrobatics!”
Rakitic’s post has been viewed over 380,000 times and received thousands of comments.
The former Sevilla star met Mauri in the coffee shop where she worked back in 2011.
Immediately struck by the beautiful barista, Rakitic reportedly asked her out “20 or 30 times” before the hard-to-get barista accepted.
The midfielder, who had recently signed for Sevilla from Shalke 04, previously said: “Whenever I saw her, it was like a bomb went off inside me.”
The couple married in April 2013 in Seville and they have two daughters together, named Althea, 6, and Adara, 3.
Rakitic played in last year’s World Cup final against France in Russia, losing 4-2 to the eventual champions.
