Ex-Barcelona striker Bojan Krkic: I want to prove myself at Roma

Former Barcelona striker Bojan Krkic is delighted with his move to AS Roma. The 20-year-old Spain international was sold to the Giallorossi for €12m, but Barcelona will buy him back after two years for €13m, otherwise Roma can cancel out that clause with a further €28m to make the move permanent.

"It is not an easy situation for me and it's bitter-sweet, but I am looking forward to this new step in my career," explained Bojan in a Press conference.

"I want to prove what I can do. As a youngster I used to dream of triumph with Barcelona and now I'm very happy because another club is giving me a chance. It'll be very exciting to play alongside Francesco Totti.

"My objective is to be happy by playing football and rediscover that joy I've lost recently under Pep Guardiola.

"As you all know, in recent years there hasn't been much faith in me, nor consistent playing time to prove what I can do. Whether I trained well or badly, it didn't matter, as I still wasn't picked. There were some unfair decisions and that's one of the reasons why I opted to leave."
