Published Add your comment

Stoke City striker Bojan Krkic will miss the remainder of the season after suffering an anterior cruciate ligament injury against Rochdale in the FA Cup on Monday.

The Spaniard opened the scoring against Rochdale with a left-foot volley but had to go off through injury in the first half.

The former Barcelona player left the ground on crutches, which left Stoke fans fearing the worst. 

Cruciate knee ligament injury confirmed

That was soon realised as a scan on Tuesday showed that Bojan had picked up a cruciate knee ligament injury.

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes told reporters: "It's bitterly disappointing for the club but even more so for Bojan himself as he was making such a big impact on the Premier League and clearly enjoying his football. We wish him a speedy recovery."
