Guardiola: 'Bojan? I never stop trusting my own players'



Guardiola hasn't needed to long to reply to Bojan Krkic's words when he left Barça.

Bojan complained about the lack of confidence and playing time Pep gave him while still in Barcelona. The Catalan coach replied today: 'The last thing I lose is the confidence in my players, whether they play, start from the bench or even have left the team'

- To be honest, Mr Krkic has nothing to whine about. During his last season at the Camp Nou, he played many more minutes than he actually deserved, especially after the January transfer window and the arrival of Ibrahim Afellay. Does anyone here remember how Ibi assisted Messi in the away leg at the Bernabeu in the Champions League semis? If Bojan had played that match, Real Madrid would probably be celebrating their tenth European Cup by now!!!

BOJAN: GOOD LUCK IN ROMA, BUT PLEASE RESPECT THE TEAM THAT MADE YOU AND MOVE ON!!!!!

    I think ur words " If Bojan had played that match, Real Madrid would probably be celebrating their tenth European Cup by now!!!" is totally wrong.....U dont expect Bojan to perform Magic if he is just given 5-10 minutes of play time. I hope he gets in the starting 11 in Roma and start showing how good a player that he is....and I HOPE HE IS BACK IN BARCA AFTER 2 YEARS :) !!!!

  2. Wow, Pep says things as they are! Me gusta! Very good, and totally true. Bojan truly has nothing to whine about. He should take a leaf out of Masche's or indeed Ibi's book. Masche never complained about his lack of playing time during autumn and winter but was always there for the team, also on the bench. He came from the bench to help Messi when he'd fallen on Javi Varas during the game against Sevilla and made him get up when no-one else could. Leo came back to play in the second half. And when given a chance, he always gave 100% and Pep gave him more and more chances because he was always so brilliant. Masche also played out of position, as a LB and a CB, and was happy to do his part for the team.

    Grow up, Bojan! This is like Ibra Part 2, except that Bojan is from la Masia and really should know better, especially as he's supposed to return in a few years. A very bad, selfish attitude.

    I'm really pleased with Pep's words. Well said! :)

    I will acknowledge that Bojan probably should not have anything on this matter. However, he was simply expressing his disappointment at how things went last year and that he now has to leave in order to re-establish himself. Naturally, Bojan's biggest critic has seen fit to write another essay rubbishing him. As for us not beating Madrid if Bojan had have played instead of Affelay, we were alweays going to beat Madrid. If we needed to win the second leg, we would have. Who knows, Bojan may have even scored the winner!!!!

    I think if he left the team then he shouldn't complain he should be sad and be quite. I would be sad if i left if i played for barca i would thank pep for all he has done for me and just with a smile on my face.

    Its so totaly true what you say!!!!!!!!!! And I really hope that he get much playtime and scores plenty of goals. Becasue that is what he need. A player cant get better if he cant play more than 10 minnutes of a game. He has so much talent (and he showed that he can score and that he have a big talent when he played with catalunya and other times) and he is young and have time and potensial to get better.

    Marcin cule dutczak- I think the most important thing for a player is to play football and i understand why he wanted to leave because he almost didnt play. And he was sad about leaving the club And how do you know how their relasionship was and what guardiola did for him?

Why Sergio Busquets' criticism of the Barcelona board is fully justified

Sergio Busquets is a player who prefers to stay away from the spotlight and do his talking on the pitch, ensuring Barca's engine continues to tick with his vision, positioning and charisma. However, in the rare occasions in which he decides to speak to the world's media, his words are loud and clear.

Following Barca's frustrating home defeat (1-3) against Real Madrid in the first leg of the SuperCopa, Busquets did not hesitate to demand much-needed new signings in order to reinforce the Blaugrana squad after the unexpected departure of Neymar:

"We try to improve the team regardless of the result of the Super Cup match. Those who come will be welcome. After Neymar's departure, we know that we need mostly offensive players, but we need to improve in all positions and aspects. With Neymar's departure evidently the team lost an attacking level, because you realise the footballer that is Neymar, there everyone will agree. About that we have Messi-dependence, in the…

Why the Barcelona board should be concerned about the #BartomeuOut Twitter campaign

Josep Maria Bartomeu is under huge scrutiny in recent times, and deservedly so. The humiliating 5-1 aggregate defeat against Real Madrid in the Spanish Supercopa was a terrible blow for Barca's morale but to think the club's problems are all a direct result of a poor result during preseason is far too simplistic.

Bartomeu, together with his predecessor and close friend Sandro Rosell, has brought Barcelona into a disheartening situation which not even the most pessimistic fans could have possibly predicted five years ago. Years of neglecting La Masia, countless signings that have struggled to make the starting lineup and the inability to connect with club members are only some of the reasons why the social media campaigns #BartomeuOut and #BartomeuDimiteYa have become a worldwide trend that show how concerning the current situation is.

We talked about the Bartomeu situation in much more depth, as well as El Clasico, Luis Suarez, Paulinho, Samper and Betis in our Episode 25 of …

Signing Paulinho for €40M is utter madness from Barcelona

Barcelona have signed Paulinho from Guangzhou Evergrande after paying €40 million for his transfer, as speculated in his release clause, according to multiple sources.

The Brazilian international midfielder, who would sign a four-year deal worth a reported €5M per season, would have completed a very unusual career path after being rejected by Tottenham Hotspurs in the English Premier League, then coming back to form in the Chinese Super League before landing at the Camp Nou at 29 years of age.

To say the signing of Paulinho is puzzling is a huge understatement. While it is disappointing to see the current Barcelona board struggling to bring world-class talent such as Philippe Coutinho or Ousmane Dembele to the Camp Nou, it is in fact much worse to see them having to pay the release clause of a player that has not been linked with any other major club in recent times.

Sure, it is clear that Paulinho has been a major contributor to the current leaders of the Chinese Super League but, h…

Philippe Coutinho's transfer request brings him closer to Barcelona

Philippe Coutinho has reportedly issued Liverpool with a transfer request, a move that can only be understood as the next step in his ongoing battle to join FC Barcelona during the current transfer window.

The Catalans are believed to have offered up to €100M for Coutinho but, given his importance within the Reds' squad, his current club has refused to allow his to leave for the current La Liga runners-up.

Both Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and club owners Fenway Sports Group have publicly explained that Coutinho will be part of the Liverpool squad for the upcoming season regardless of how much money Barcelona decide to offer to secure the Brazilian's services.

Coutinho, clearly unhappy about the latest developments, has decided to take matters a step further in a desperate attempt to agitate the current situation and force a transfer to the Camp Nou.

Personally, I believe that Coutinho would be a great addition to Barcelona given his undeniable quality, experience in a huge…
