Bojan Krkic Happy with a Return to First-Team Action

Bojan Krkic says that he became emotional after coming off the bench in the 1-1 draw with West Ham.


It marked the first appearance for the Spaniard since the middle of September. He has been struggling with injuries for a long time. The former Barcelona forward was a revelation in his first season at the club. Many were left surprised with the quick adaptation by the 26-year-old to life in the Premier league. Injuries often bring a career to a standstill and it appears to be the case with Bojan Krkic of late. After managing to score 7 goals in 27 league appearances last season, he has had a stop start campaign this time around.

BojanKrkic has fallen down in the pecking order at Stoke City

BojanKrkic is a player that was being hyped up since the start of his career as he actually made his first-team debut at a younger age that even Lionel Messi as Krkic made his debut when he was 17 years and 19 days old.


He eventually went on to make over 100 appearances with Barcelona but could never really impress and was eventually released to other clubs on loan deals and any of the clubs opted to retain him on a permanent deal.

FIFA BLOCKS BOJAN’S SERBIA SWITCH

World football governing body FIFA has blocked the switch of Spain international Bojan Krkic to Serbia, according to reports.


The former Barcelona forward wanted to change allegiance to Serbia so a transfer of international eligibility was sought. FIFA denied this request since Bojan has already featured in a World Cup qualifying game for Spain.

Stoke City May Quit Chase of Saido Berahino, Claims Mark Hughes

Stoke City may soon accept their defeat in the pursuit of strikerSaido Berahino according to manager Mark Hughes.


The club have been chasing the West Brom striker for quite a while, but Tony Pulis seems unwilling to sell the star forward for anything less than £ 30 million. Berahino has also been linked with Tottenham which makes it doubly tough for Stoke to come away with the prized signing. Spurs will be able to offer Champions League football for the England international whereas Stoke City have been quite inconsistent with the European qualification over the last few years.

Bojan Krkic - Legend of Football

Bojan Krkic was an extremely promising teenager when he came through the ranks at Barcelona.

However, he went from the status as a relative unknown for a majority of the fans towards being on the verge of being called up for the Spain national team. More importantly,Krkic was expected to be part of the Spanish national team travelling to the Euro 2008. It would have been a crowning moment for any player wishing to be part of the national team, butKrkic’s offer came at the age of 17. He was just diagnosed with an anxiety attack just a few months ago.

Bojan Krkic features for Catalonia

Bojan Krkic recently had a run out for the Catalonia national team. Catalonia is not recognised by FIFA as an international team.
This coupled with Stoke City not having a break during Christmas meant that Krkic had been unable to feature for Catalonia in their annual friendly game. This time around, the Stoke City forward has been able to feature and expresses his delight. Krkic has played for Barcelona and Roma before joining Stoke City. A winter break is usually the norm in Spanish and Italian leagues, but it is the time when there are a lot of fixtures in the Premier League.
