Bojan Krkic has message for Stoke fans after match-winning strike

Stoke Britannia Stadium

The Stoke City player got on the score-sheet again this weekend.

Stoke City striker Bojan Krkic has taken to Twitter to send a special message after he scored the winning goal against Southampton on Saturday.

The 25-year-old Spaniard has had a relatively good start to the season, scoring two goals in eight league appearances prior to the weekend, and he netted his second match-winning strike of the campaign against the Saints.

Bojan’s goal came in only the 10th minutes and Mark Hughes’ side held out thereafter, delivering a fine rear-guard action as they failed to have another strike on target in the proceeding 85 minutes.

Writing on social media on Sunday afternoon, Bojan said, “I wanted to dedicate yesterday’s goal to all Stoke fans. Thank you for the unconditional support.”

The former Barcelona player suffered a cruciate ligament injury last season and he was subsequently side-lined from January until August.

But after returning to Stoke’s first-team he has proved to be a vital player for them, and it is clear his latest strike means a lot, just as the ongoing supporter from his fans does.
