The former Barcelona striker Bojan Krkic has said that he is extremely excited to be part of the US pre-season tour with Italian club Roma. The young striker made his move to Roma last season, but enjoyed an up-and-down season with the Italian club.

However, he is extremely excited about the prospect of playing in the United States against some of the best teams in the world as part of the pre-season tour. Even though it will not be the first time Bojan Krkic is travelling to the United States as part of the pre-season friendlies, the former Barcelona striker has said that he is very much looking forward to the three matches.

Roma will be playing three friendly matches in the United States. The club will be hoping for a good start to the season, as it could help them overcome the back memories of the very poor season. It has been quite awhile since the club has been in the Champions League. They will be set for another season without European football after they finished in the seventh position. The club secured the services of Zdenek Zeman prior to the close of the last season. Zdenek Zeman he is expected to push for a European place this season given the players at his disposal like Bojan Krkic.

“We’ve finished the first stage of our pre-season preparations and we think we've worked really well. It was hard but we all realise how important it is to lay the fitness groundwork for the season. We’ll continue our preparations with more training sessions and the three friendly games we have lined up at three fantastic cities – Chicago, Boston and New York,” said Bojan Krkic prior to the start of the pre-season. The 21-year-old is expected to score more goals than he did last season.
