Stoke City manager Mark Hughes has stated that he wanted Bojan Krkic to stay with the club for the season. He said that he is a useful player and that he believes that he has a future with Stoke City.

Mark Hughes said that there is no way that he will sell Bojan Krkic at the moment and that he will return to Stoke City after his loan move to Alaves.

Bojan Krkic spent last season on loan at Mainz, and Mark Hughes has revealed that he wanted the player to remain at Stoke City this season. However, the player wanted to have enough playing time and said that he wanted to go on loan to Alaves this season.

Mark Hughes said that Bojan Krkic had been a very successful player for Stoke City ever since he left Barcelona and he will be looking forward to seeing him play with them again in the future. Hughes believes that the future of the player lies with Stoke City, but unfortunately, the player is more interested in playing in Spain.

Bojan Krkic said that he is at a moment of his career where he wants to get enough playing time and he felt that he will be able to have this at Alaves. He said that he has not shut the door to a return to Stoke City and that he will take a decision at the end of the season.

Mark Hughes said that Stoke City can have a good season and that they have the resources to do something interesting. He said that the start of the season has been quite average so far, but he believes that the team is improving quickly and that they should be able to go on an interesting run.
