Bojan Krkic brings another dimension to Montreal’s offense
Time to get excited. The Impact made THE move of the MLS transfer window, bringing in former Barcelona prodigy Bojan Krkic, now aged 28 years old, to Montreal. It’s a major signing, a player that will assuredly find success and contribute to Stade Saputo’s electric atmosphere.
After a promising start to his career in which he was dubbed the new Messi during his four seasons with the Blaugrana, Bojan played in Serie A, with Roma and AC Milan, in Eredivisie with Ajax Amsterdam and in the Premier League with Stoke City. He was also lent by the Potters to Mainz, in Bundesliga, and to Alavés, in La Liga. With 372 games of experience since 2007, the year he turned professional – at the age of 17 – with Barça, Bojan was one of the few players to publicly open up about his mental health issues, admitting he suffered from anxiety from a very young age, which had an impact on his career. His love of the sport did however help him through this difficult time, a love that remains just as strong at this point of his career.
Today, Bojan is ready for this new challenge with the Impact. On the field, expect a technical player, a good dribbler that can play one-touch football in the traditional Spanish way, who can contribute in transition as much as he can find the back of the net. 75 goals and 33 assists at the highest level in Spain, Italy, Netherlands, and Germany, speaks for itself.
