Krkic Will be Exciting Addition
Stoke City midfielder Steve Sidwell has claimed that the club’s summer acquisition Bojan Krkic will be an exciting player in the Premier League for the upcoming season. The former Barcelona forward joined Stoke in a deal that has raised a few eyebrows. It was only a few years ago that the 23-year-old was regarded as one of most exciting players in world football. However, his career has not progressed in the same way as many would have hoped, but even at this young age, he has the possibility to rediscover his form.
A Barcelona player, who is brought up in the passing and possession school of football, to be able to play for Stoke, who primarily concentrate on taking advantage of their physicality, will be watched keenly by several pundits and fans. Sidwell, who has seen Krkic in training, says that the Spanish international has the ability to take the Premier League by storm. Krkic has joined Stoke City for just around £ 1 million. Hence, the club will not be losing much if this gamble does not work out. Krkic has been looking extremely positive during the pre-season. The club’s first match of the season will be against Aston Villa at home.
Sidwell is also one of the club’s new players after joining the team on a free transfer from Fulham.
“Bojan has looked very impressive and very sharp during pre-season, and he’s scored some goals as well. But it’s what you expect when you look at the teams he has played for, especially his education at Barcelona. He’s a great prospect for us, he’s an exciting player and I’m looking forward to seeing him in action when the season begins,” said the former Chelsea and Reading midfielder. Sidwell was one of the important players for Fulham last season.
