Bojan realistic over Roma prospects
Roma forward Bojan Krkic believes his team will be competitive in the near future but for the time being they must concentrate on growing as a team. The 21-year-old Spain international joined the Eternal City giants this summer from Barcelona.
He finds himself part of a side that are seven points behind Serie A leaders Udinese after ten games, and has set his sights on achieving realistic goals with his new team. "We want to win the Scudetto," Bojan said in today's press conference. "But at the moment, the best we can target is a place in the Champions League or the Europa League. We have a new project and we have to grow as a team while remaining united."
Roma, who changed ownership earlier this year, appointed Luis Enrique as their coach this summer. "We have everything that we need to do well," Bojan said. "We have ambition and high expectation for the future. We shouldn't feel demoralised when we lose or talk about the Scudetto when we win. We have to continue to work hard as we are doing and aim high."
Bojan found regular first-team football hard to come by at Barca and reckons his move to Roma has offered him a new challenge in his career. "I'm really happy here," he said. "I'm in a big club and we are doing well. I feel privileged to be able to play for Roma.
"We don't feel inferior to any team that we have played against this season. I don't think about the past. My focus is on giving everything to this club. I've always had confidence in myself and I want to prove that I can become an important player to my team-mates, to my coach and to the fans."
Bojan has scored three goals in eight league appearances for i Giallorossi this season.
