MLS Plays for Montreal Impact
As football continues across the globe, Bojan Krkic as admitted no decisions one his future in the MLS with Canadian side Montreal Impact will be made until everything is back to normal.
The former Barcelona prodigy is in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic in North America, which is affecting American sports.
“We’ll have to see when this is all over, but I repeat that I’m happy here,” Bojan told MARCA.
“Here, like everywhere, we are adapting a bit to what the situation allows.
“MLS has created a different tournament format here in Orlando, the truth is that it’s good because it allows us to compete, train and enjoy.
“Personally, I feel good and I give thanks for being able to compete.”
However, rules are tight for all of those involved.
“We are shut in a hotel, they test us every two days, we have to wear a mask in common areas, but these measures are quite normal in all places,” Bojan said.
“What really matters for footballers is going as far as we can in the championship.
“On a footballing level, everything is good despite so long without competing, training has been good and the games are too and physically we have no excuse.”
After a 1-0 defeat to Orlando City, Montreal Impact have their work cut out but their task is not impossible.
“For us what’s important is to get out of the group, we knew the rivals compete well and would be difficult,” Bojan added.
“I’m very happy to be in this country, it’s true that right now it’s not MLS or the American league, we have to see how the situation evolves in this country and globally but the time I’ve been here has been positive,” Bojan admitted.
“Now I have a bit of expectation, like everyone, of what will happen with the US league, the situation is complex and we are from Canada, but I’m thinking positively until we know what will happen.”
He has also been impressed by the growth of football in North America.
“Football here is growing a lot at a structural level in general, they want to be a very solid league, but you have to remember that there are four sports ahead of football in this area,” Bojan reflected.
“Even then, it’s improving and they want to be a reference point globally.”
Bojan departed Stoke City to find a new challenge after a disappointing spell in England.
