Bojan Krkic’ father said that not everybody at Barcelona “welcomed” the striker, something that doesn’t surprise the player’s fans and white label sportsbooks.
Bojan, who was seen by many as potentially being another Lionel Messi in the time that he spent at Barca, ended up leaving Camp Nou during the summer after playing in Roma and Ajax on loan.
The striker was able to settle in very well at Premier League outfit Stoke since he made a move there during the off-season, and Bojan’s father was very delighted when he learned about this.
When he spoke about the time that Bojan spent with the Catalan giants, he said: “They were international stars. They saw a little boy starting games.
“Sometimes, Ronaldinho was on the bench and Bojan starts. You can imagine, eh? Not easy. It became very difficult. He wasn’t welcomed in by everyone.
“[Pep] Guardiola didn’t give him continuity. In the Copa del Rey, Bojan was the top goalscorer for Pep.
“In La Liga, he could score one or two goals, but then not play again for weeks. It is very curious.
“In the title run-in in 2010, he kept [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic on the bench. Bojan played, scoring at Sevilla and Tenerife, and they were decisive goals. Then, when the season ended, they signed David Villa.”
Now things are much different than the 24-year-old, as the player was able to make some very impressive performances for Stoke City.
His father also said: “At Stoke, he is playing like an animal. He saves his best for the big games.
“He loves Mark Hughes and his training sessions are creative. He is playing behind the forward and he has the freedom to express himself but he is fighting for the team, too.
“He chases everything, he works for the team. Against Arsenal, he ran and ran.
“My boy has suffered a lot in football. Too much. But it is a very long time since I have seen Bojan this happy. He is truly content at Stoke and, as a father, that’s a warm feeling.”
Bojan’s fans and white label sportsbooks can clearly see what huge talent the striker is, and many fans are still wondering about what exactly happened at Barca. However, the past is the past, and many in the football world believe that things for the player can only continue to improve.
