The big game between Madrid and Barça in the Bernabeu is just seven matches away. However, Bojan does not believe it will be decisive: “It’ll be an important match but not decisive"
Bojan Krkic told a press conference after the win against Malaga: “Obviously the match in the
Bernabeu will be very important but in football any team can surprise you, especially in the
Spanish league. For that reason we have to take all the opponents into account”.
“We suffered a dip in form but we recovered”
Bojan admits that he team has suffered a dip in form over the past month
but is upbeat about the recovery: “It’s a very long season and it’s normal to
have ups and downs. We’re only human. It’s true that we’re suffered a dip in form
but we’ve demonstrated that we know how to recover”.
Unity is strength
The last gasp win against Malaga has given the team more strength and confidence. For Bojan,
unity in the squad is essential ahead of the tough test to come: “We’re completely
united and if we keep on helping each other as we have up to now I’m convinced that
we’ll overcome all adversities we might meet from here until the end of the season”.
“Pep’s praise is a prize”
After the match against Racing Santander, and not for the first time
this season, Guardiola heaped praise on Bojan in the press conference: “When Guardiola speaks
well of me and says that I’m an important player, that’s a prize for me. That’s
what encourages me to carry on working to gain a place in the team and take full advantage of every
minute I get”.
