Former Barcelona player, Bojan Krkic mentioned his frustrations at Stoke City to reporters. The former AC Milan forward had a lot of potential when he broke top of the famous Barcelona football academy but has now found himself at Stoke City with issues with regular starts.
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.
Stoke City came to Anfield with the intention of exposing the flaws of Liverpool and played with a different system to the one they normally play with, but, it couldn’t quite sit well as it actually opened the opportunities for the Reds instead of blocking them.
And, any possibility that the Potters might have of finding themselves in the Europa League next season, it ended with a 1-4 result.
Volker Finke was in charge of the Cameroon national football team for around 2 years but after the recent underwhelming results that the national side has been sustaining, Finke was sacked and replaced by Hugo Broos.
Bojan Krkic isn’t the most highly rated forwards in Europe or the most proactive one but he has still managed to earn the support of the managerial staff of Stoke City.
BojanKrkic’s career has seen him performing with some of the biggest clubs in the world such as: Ac.Milan, Barcelona, As.Roma and Ajax but the Catalan player failed to perform or to truly stand out with any of those clubs but his career has been brought back to life after he made a move to Stoke City.
After being linked with any exit for much of the summer, it looks like Yaya Touré will stay at Manchester City for the time being.
Stoke City boss Mark Hughes has confirmed that his star forward Bojan Krkic is all set to return from a long spell on the sidelines.
The former Barcelona forward was a star signing for the club last summer. He was expected to take a long time to accommodate to the physical style of English football, but it happened much sooner than expected. Just when it seemed that Bojan Krkic was set to take the league by storm, a long-term injury sidelined him for much of the 2014-15 season. Even without the star asset, Stoke were able to enjoy a good campaign.
Mark Hughes says that he expects star striker Bojan Krkic to return to first-team action by the start of next season.
The Stoke City forward was extremely unlikely to get a cruciate ligament injury at a time when he was just starting to find his feet at the club. The former Barcelona man was widely expected to struggle when it was announced that he was going to play for Stoke City – a team known for its physical style of football. Even though Hughes has been trying to change this aspect about the club, it largely remains a work in progress.
"We couldn't have asked for a better finish to a really great season. The level of performance in that first 45 minutes was exceptional and I don't think it reflects badly on Liverpool. I think most teams would have struggled to cope with the quality and intensity of our play.’’
This was the statement that was released by Mark Hughes as he praised the work and performance that his players displayed during the last match of the season of Stoke City as they locked horns with Liverpool and came out as the victorious side with a resounding 6-1 triumph.
