Bojan on high expectations

Milan forward Bojan Krkic has admitted that breaking through at Barcelona as a teenager has created problems for him.

The Spaniard was being touted for greatness after making an impact at the Camp Nou, but he’s found things tough over the last few seasons.

“I’m only 22-years-old,” he told Grada 360. “Sometimes people think that I am older and expect more of me than what I am.

“But I am calm and demonstrate that I have yet a long way to go to improve and learn.”

Bojan spent last season at Roma, but moved to the San Siro this summer following the club’s sale of Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Paris Saint-Germain.

“The experience at Milan has been very positive,” he added. “The atmosphere is fantastic and my teammates have welcomed me.

“There are many new players here and some very important players. The fans are closely linked to the club, they are helping a lot and with a little patience we will get things done.

“Serie A is a difficult League for strikers," he added. "It is much more tactical and attackers have less prominence in terms of opportunities, but for me it is still a very important experience.”

Bojan was also asked for his thoughts on ‘derbies’ – having played in the Clasico, the Rome derby and the Milan derby.

“All three are special and very different,” he explained.

“Barca-Madrid is a worldwide classic, I was shocked by the rivalry and the competition between the players in the Rome derby and I really enjoyed the respect and seniority that permeates at San Siro in the Milan derby.”
