thumbnail Hello,

The former Barcelona forward, who completed a move to the Britannia Stadium on Tuesday, is enthusiastic about manager Mark Hughes's approach to playing the game.

Stoke City new boy Bojan Krkic says that the club's playing style helped to convince him to sign for the Potters.

Under previous manager Tony Pulis, Stoke earned a reputation for particularly direct, physical football but Mark Hughes began a shift in approach last season which attracted the 23-year-old to the Britannia Stadium.

Bojan told the club's official website: "I saw that the idea here is to get the ball down and play good football. There are many good players here that want to play with the ball at their feet. I think that will suit the way that I like to play.

"I don't know what I can add to the team but I know what I am capable of on the pitch. I like to get the ball on the ground, make good plays and move the ball around the pitch quickly at a good tempo. I like to build good relationships with other players, too, which is important."

Bojan, who has signed a four-year contract at the Britannia Stadium, has previously been utilized in wide roles but is keen on taking center stage for Stoke.

"I like to play as a striker or secondary striker," he added. "In recent seasons I have played out wide but I do feel that my best position is in a more central role."
