Bojan: Barcelona brilliant but I prefer Stoke

The 24-year-old is enjoying life in England and has also revealed how former Blaugrana team-mate Thierry Henry helped convince him to make the move to the Premier League
Bojan Krkic says that while he loved playing for Barcelona, he prefers life at Stoke City.
The diminutive forward left the Catalan club in the summer - after a loan spell with Ajax - and signed a four-year deal with Mark Hughes' side.
Bojan has made seven appearances for the Potters this season, scoring once, and says he is enjoying his football in the Premier League more than he ever did in La Liga.
“I love the passion at Barcelona, I have grown up in a Latin country after all, but I like it better here. In Spain, people do not respect the players, the same as in Italy,” he told reporters.
“In England it looks like a different world, the people admire the players but also respect them. Here is better, more tranquil.
“I knew Stoke was a historic club and when I learned Mark wanted me in this team, it was a great motivation.
“The first few months have been important to improve my physical condition and get used to a new league. But anyone will tell you, the more you play, the better rhythm you find.
“I think I have played well in some games but people will say Spurs was my best match because I scored and we won!”
Bojan also revealed how former team-mate and Arsenal icon Thierry Henry helped convince him to make the move to the Premier League.
“Thierry said in England it was easy, the people never came to the training ground and the journalists only visited once a week,” he added.
“At Barcelona, there are 5,000 people at training every day, television crews filming you every day. It's totally different.”
