It has been clear under club manager Josep Guardiola that Bojan Krkic was not a happy player. In his debut and breakout season of 2007-2008, Bojan played nearly 1,500 minutes. Since then, he has yet to see 1,000 minutes on the pitch.
While Bojan is indeed a great player, he hasn't been able to live up to the promise of his debut season and expectations, through fault of his own or others.
It also didn't help that he has been expected to produce on a front line consisting of star players such as Villa, Messi and Pedro, and with the impending signing of Alexis Sanchez, a departure from Barcelona was all but certain.
Bojan is now on loan at AS Rome with the possibility of returning during the 2013 summer transfer window. Should Bojan flourish in Rome, away from the pressure of producing for the world's best club, we can be assured that Bojan will return unless Rome picks up the permanent purchase option.
Bojan has made it clear he is unhappy and has been labeled as a crybaby by some. He has immense talent, and the best thing for him to do is to flourish away from the pressure and then return as a more mature player.
