Bojan back in Benidorm

Berta Brau

Barça’s opponents in the Cup are old foes of Bojan Krkic, who will once again be playing against Benidorm but this time with the first team.

Bojan Krkic is back in Benidorm after a gap of two years. As a Barça B player under Quique Costas in the 2006/07 season he played against them twice, scoring a goal. However, that experience also tells him that Benidorm are a tough nut to crack as Barça B lost both games.

Debut at the Miniestadi and first goal

He also managed to score a goal to make the experience even more memorable, even though his side lost. “It was a very special game, my first in the Miniestadi and a goal that wasn’t worth much as we lost, but it was special as the first,” he now recalls.

Lost to Benidorm twice

Getting his own back

Benidorm are standing between Barcelona and a place in the last 16 of the King’s Cup, and Bojan will have the chance to get his own back. “It’s always special, just like last year against Alcoyano,” he points out. “We went there with the first team and that’s when you see the difference compared with going there as Barça B. Then you realise how far you’ve come, so having the chance to play against them in the King’s Cup for the first team means a lot to me.”

Benidorm and first team debut
The 3-0 defeat Barça B received at Benidorm in the 2006/07 season had a silver lining for Bojan, as he was called up after the game by Frank Rijkaard. “It was after that match that I made my first team debut in Egypt,” he recalls. “And I scored in that game too.”
