Roma's Bojan Krkic: I have never criticised Barcelona's Pep Guardiola

The young Spaniard underlined that he does not have any negative comments to make about his former coach and spoke of his delight at being at the Serie A giants
Roma striker Bojan Krkic has guaranteed that he never intended to hit out at Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola.

The 21-year-old striker lamented in the summer his lack of playing opportunities at Camp Nou, which made him choose to further his career at the Serie A side.

Guardiola has recently come under fire from AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who slammed the Spanish coach in his autobiography.

Bojan has now guaranteed that he does not think the same way as the Swedish striker as there is no bad blood between him and the 40-year-old coach.

"I was a little bit surprised, because I was on the same list of people who criticised Guardiola," he told EFE. "I believe that I have never criticised Guardiola, on the contrary.

"I believe that Barcelona are where they are in part because of Guardiola, who is the best coach that Barca could have.

"I am very calm, he knows that I never criticised him when I was there and I will not do it now."

The player then remarked that he is happy with life at Roma, who are seventh in the Serie A standings.

"We are a young team, with a lot of new players and a different mentality, but everything is going well and we are eager to make the club succeed," he added.
