Bojan determined to keep on learning

Jordi Clos

Barca’s young striker, who notched up his first goal of the pre-season against Spurs on Friday night, is excited about the new campaign and pleased with Guardiola’s commitment to the club’s youngsters, himself included.

The first 45 minutes of the pre-season served to demonstrate that Bojan Krkic has certainly not lost any of his goal scoring instincts and speaking to the media earlier today he insisted: “I’ll be fighting to keep on learning my trade and I’m full of hope and excitement at the prospect of this season”.

Guardiola counting on him

Bojan made it clear that her feels very much a part of Guardiola’s plans: “I didn’t play too much last season, but the boss has assured me that he’s counting on me this year and he wants me to stay at the club”. The fact that Guardiola is so clearly committed to bringing through the club’s youngsters is a further motivation for Bojan who reckons: “after you’ve won so much with home grown players and you start a new season with even more youngsters, it really makes you see that you have plenty of opportunities here”.

Too early to draw conclusions

BARCELONA-TOTTENHAM_04.jpgThere are 11 players in the squad currently in England who’ve come through the club’s youth teams and Bojan feels they all “performed at a very high level”, whilst accepting: “it’s still too early in the pre-season to make any real conclusions, we’ve only been together for five days and there are still players missing”.

Praise for Eto’o and Ibrahimovic

The press were naturally keen to get some reaction to the club’s transfer dealings over the summer and Bojan reflected on the departure of Eto’o - “he helped me from my first day” and the arrival of Ibrahimovic, who he reckons “is a real quality player and physically very strong”.
