Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola is happy with Bojan Krkic's attitude in training.

Despite doubts over Guardiola's plans for the Spain international, Barcelona sources say the coach is happy with his form and attitude in training and regards the teenager as part of his plans.

Pundits have been surprised by the lack of action Krkic has seen this term, with former Barca Atleti pair Pedro and Sergi Busquets being selected ahead of the starlet.

But Guardiola will use Krkic in coming games when he rotates his first-choice strikers Thierry Henry and Samuel Eto'o.

Meanwhile, sources close to Guardiola say he is unconcerned over Lionel Messi's disappointing start to the season. The coach stresses that he is trying to get Messi to play to a new attacking system and it will take time for the young Argentine to adjust.
