How Twitter reacted as Stoke City’s Bojan moved to CD Alaves on loan

Written by

After starting his footballing career with so much promise as a product of the Barcelona youth system, Stoke City forward Bojan Krkic’s season-long loan switch to CD Alaves has been confirmed.

The 27-year-old made over 150 appearances at the Nou Camp, winning three consecutive La Liga titles between 2009 and 2011 and being part of Barcelona’s Champions League-winning squads in 2009 and 2011, but since moving to Roma his career has been on a constant decline for years now.

His move to Stoke City sent shockwaves around the Premier League in 2014, setting the precedent for further marquee signings since, but he’s struggled to replicate the famous impact he once had in Spain.

A statement on Stoke’s official website said:

“Bojan has departed the bet365 Stadium to join Alaves on loan until the end of the season.

“The Spanish forward links-up with the La Liga side for the remainder of the campaign, having featured in just one of the Potters’ three Premier League fixtures thus far.”

The Spaniard has still managed to make 62 appearances for the Potters to date, but he’s fallen out of favour amongst manager Mark Hughes in recent times and spent last year on-loan at German side Mainz.
