Bojan hits out at Guardiola

Roma's Bojan Krkic has told Barcelona that he won't return to the club while Pep Guardiola is Coach.

The youngster joined the Italian outfit in a rather complicated summer move which is effectively a two-season loan.

However, the forward has seemed to rule out a Nou Camp return in 2013 unless the club have changed their Coach by then.

"Guardiola didn't see me at all," the Under-21 international told a Spanish TV station.

"I could give 100 per cent in training, yet he would never consider me for selection in the games," continued the talent.

"I basically left Barcelona because of him and I'll certainly not return while he is still on the Barcelona bench.

"I was not happy because I didn't play and I didn't have any continuity. I was sad and I did not want to play or train.

"I tried to talk to him at times, but the words would not come out. It is one thing not to play and quite another not to feel a part of the squad.

"As a fan, Guardiola is the best Coach you can have at a club. As a player, though, I was unlucky not to feature in his plans."

Bojan has played in three Serie A games for his new club so far, scoring one goal in the win over Atalanta.
