Bojan: "The squad is very ambitious"

Roger Bogunyà

Bojan Krkic believes that FC Barcelona's ambitions must have no limits this season because he believes that the current squad is capable of challenging on in every competition.

On his 18th birthday, the Blaugrana striker signed a new contract extension at Camp Nou that will keep him at the club until 2013 and he assured in a press conference on Friday that he is relishing playing in Europe. "It does not matter which teams we have drawn because we will go into every game in the same manner," he said. "The squad have a strong desire to really achieve something this season."

No easy games

"All the teams are in the Champions League and therefore nobody can say that because they do not have such a big name that they will be any easier," he continued. "We will treat every side that we meet the same way."

A privilege

On a personal level, Bojan is pleased with his place in Pep Guardiola's first team squad. "I am a young player and, just like last year, I hope to continue to have the confidence of the coaches," he explained. "Being in the first team at 18 is a privilege."

Starting again

No favourites

When asked about who he felt the favourites to win the title will be this season, Bojan was diplomatic in his answer. "It is impossible to choose a favourite," he explained. "All I know is what things are like here and that we are 100 per cent ready for the start of the league season."

Looking ahead to Real Madrid's chances, the young forward simply said: "They are a very good team with some exceptional individuals."

Playing For Spain
Bojan Krkic has been called up to the full Spain squad on two occasions but has yet to make his debut, but that does not him. "I am very pleased to have been a part of the squad against Denmark because I was on the bench for the European champions at 17 years of age and that is a privilege. For me it is the greatest. When the moment comes for me to make my debut that is when it will happen." Serbian coach Radomir Antic has voiced hopes that he could persuade the player to play for him as his father was from there, but Bojan ruled that out. "I am very grateful that he wants me, but I am Spanish and feel Spanish."
