Bojan: “A dream come true”

Sandra Sarmiento

Bojan Krkic made his official debut when he came on for Barca in Pamplona last night and told reporters today: “It was a privilege just to play for 10 minutes – it’s a dream come true”.

Bojan, at just 17 years and 20 days wrote his name in the club’s history when he came on for his friend Giovanni Dos Santos and insisted: “I’m very happy indeed. It was a special day for me”.

Debut sensations

“Once you are out there on the pitch, you don’t worry about the score or making your debut, you just get on and do what you are supposed to do as well as you can.” He certainly did that and even though he was only on for 10 minutes, he had a couple of chances: “as a centre forward, you know that the longer you play, the more chances you’ll get, but I had a couple of occasions in the ten minutes, it was just a pity I couldn’t do more with them”.

Next aim

Bojan’s meteoric rise –from youth team to first team in just one season – means he’s now playing with some of the best players in the game and he knows he can learn from them: “I’ve always had players who I tried to follow, but this is different, I’m in there with some of the World’s biggest stars and I’m determined to learn all I can from them”.

Pressure off

The club have insisted time and again on the need to protect their young star and allow him to play in a pressure free atmosphere and Bojan himself is clearly in agreement with the approach:. “both myself and Giovani have come up to the first team this season and we have to show the boss that he can count on us, but without putting too much responsibility on us – I think it’s good that they are keeping the pressure off us. I’m here with the first team squad now and the possibility of going back to the second team is completely discounted. I’m training with the first team and I want to show just why I’m here”.

Convinced the goals will come soon
Barca have failed to score on their first two trips, to Santander and Pamplona, but Bojan remains optimistic: “I’ve only seen the Pamplona game of course, but even though you sometimes don’t have enough sharpness upfront, the quality we have, I’m sure that when the goals start to go in, they’ll not stop coming”.
