FC Barcelona – La Liga Bosnian left wondering
Miralem Pjanic arrived at Barcelona as a major signing last summer, but things haven’t gone according to plan for the Bosnia international and he’s not too sure why.
The midfielder is clearly frustrated, but is determined to turn things around.
“The exact reasons why I’ve not had the playing time expected, I don’t have them,” Pjanic said in an interview with Telefoot.
“I keep working and you have to respect the decisions that are taken, even if you don’t agree.
“I want to leave my mark at this club.”
Pjanic also looked ahead to Barcelona’s huge Champions League clash against Paris Saint-Germain this week.
“It’s a last 16 match and it won’t be easy for either team,” he said.
“For us, the fans and the club, it is very important to beat PSG.
“What PSG really want is the Champions League as for them winning Ligue 1 is almost an obligation.”
Pjanic, inevitably, was also asked about Lionel Messi.
“Right now he’s focused on achieving our goals this season,” he stated.
“It’s not easy to turn the page after all he’s experienced, but I think he’s done it. He seems motivated and strong.
“We have to make the most of him and go as far as possible in all competitions.”
