Bojan Krkic: 'Stoke City is not Barcelona'

Bojan Krkic praises the improvement of Stoke City's style of play under Mark Hughes.

Stoke City's Bojan Krkic has recognised the improvement in the club's style of play under manager Mark Hughes and insisted that they "don't want" to play like former club Barcelona.

The 25-year-old has gone on to make 28 appearances since joining the Potters last summer, scoring seven goals in that time.

"It's different styles of course, me and Marc Muniesa came here from Barcelona, and it is very different, but we know we have to play like Stoke City," he told Sky Sports News.

"We want to play football, nice football. To play like Barcelona is difficult, we don't want to do that. We want to play, enjoy football, and of course win the game.

"Yes of course [it has changed]. The people say Stoke City four years ago is completely different to now. I see this, and I can see everyone wants to move Stoke in the best position in the Premier League."

The Spaniard has recently been linked with interest from Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea, but his manager yesterday insisted that the player is going nowhere.
