Bojan Krkic said he wants to make his loan move to AC Milan permanent in the off-season.
The 22-year-old forward joined the club on a season-long loan deal from Roma in August, and hopes to do enough in the remainder of the campaign to convince the Rossoneri of his worth.
“My mission is to be kept on by Milan. Nobody wants to stay with the Rossoneri for only for one season,” he told Corriere dello Sport.
Bojan has scored just once in 14 appearances for the club – his solitary strike coming in the 5-1 demolition of Chievo – but he believes he should be judged on his all-round game and not just his goal tally.
“I miss scoring lots of goals, but I have always thought that a striker should not be judged just by the amount of goals he scores. The work he does for the team is also important,” Bojan said.
Milan take on Serie A leaders Juventus on Sunday on the back of a 3-1 Champions League victory over Anderlecht on Wednesday and the former Barcelona man believes he and his team-mates will be high on confidence going into the game.
“This match comes at the right moment. We got a draw in Naples after a positive performance, then we secured Champions League qualification,” he said.
“Our confidence has increased and for us this game is a great opportunity. Every match is worth three points, but to beat Juventus would be a huge boost for us.”
