Stoke City forward Bojan Krkic has sent a message on Twitter following the news that he will be out for the rest of the season.
The former Barcelona player suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury in the 4-1 FA Cup fourth round victory against Rochdale on Monday evening, and it was later confirmed by the BBC that the 24-year-old would not play again this season.
The news comes as a bitter blow both for the player and for Potters fans after the Spaniard settled well at the Britannia Stadium, scoring five goals and providing two assists in his 18 appearances to date.
The signing of Bojan was a huge coup for Stoke manager Mark Hughes and it spoke of a club keen to push on in the coming campaigns.
They are heading in the right direction but they will have to make do without their diminutive front-man for quite some time, although the player himself remains upbeat.
Writing on Twitter on Wednesday morning, Bojan said, “I will be positive. I’ll face it with a smile.
“I promise you that I’ll come back stronger than ever. Thanks for your love, I really appreciate it.”
Stoke are currently 10th in the Premier League and their next match is at home to Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.
