Roma's Bojan Krkic: I deserved more from Barcelona

The youngster says he left the Spanish giants because he was not given the opportunity to prove his worth to Pep Guardiola and is now happy to be with the Italian side
Roma striker Bojan Krkic claims he did not get a fair shot at Barcelona prior to his summer transfer to the Serie A club.

The 21-year-old failed to hold a regular starting slot at Camp Nou last season and was sold for an initial €12 million fee in July.

Krkic believes he deserved more of a chance to shine at the Spanish giants, but he is not critical of coach Pep Guardiola.

"It was extraordinary playing for Barcelona, but during the final months there I did not get much of a chance to play, and for a player this is very important," he told Sport.es.

"I have nothing against Guardiola as he is the greatest coach, but it's clear I was not happy last season because I did not get the chance I deserved."

Krkic scored his first goal for Roma in their 3-1 win over Atalanta last week.
