Bojan: I needed first Alaves goal

Bojan Krkic believes he ‘needed’ his first goal for Alaves in their Copa Del Rey victory over Getafe on Thursday in a victory the fans ‘deserved’.

The 27-year-old joined the Basque outfit on a loan deal from Stoke City in the summer but has started only two La Liga matches with his first goal coming in the 3-0 midweek win over Getafe.

“I needed that goal, I needed that moment and the support I’ve received from the fans,” Bojan is quoted as saying by Marca.

“I wanted to give something back to the fans who have been so supportive of me and they deserved that and the victory, of course.

“It was important for us to progress in the competition and for us to do that by playing well is even better.

“The victory could be hugely significant for us as it will give us confidence and allow us to keep getting better and hopefully gain more momentum.”
