Pjanic: I’m not satisfied with my lack of game time at Barcelona

Barcelona midfielder Miralem Pjanic has admitted that he’s not satisfied with the lack of game time he’s getting under head coach Ronald Koeman. 

Pjanic joined Barcelona in June of this year on a four-year contract after the Spanish club paid a reported £55 million fee to sign him from Juventus. 

However, the Bosnian international has struggled to nail down a regular spot in the Barcelona team. 

Despite starting in each of the club’s unbeaten Champions League games, Pjanic has only been in the starting XI in one of the club’s 10 La Liga games. 

And, according to the player, that simply isn’t good enough. In an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport  ahead of Barcelona’s clash with his former club, the midfielder explained how unhappy he was with his current situation.

  • “Honestly, I don’t understand why I’m in this situation either,” said Pjanic. “It’s clear that I want to play a lot more. 

    “I know I can contribute a lot, and when the coach has made me play I’ve always done well, I played good games. More than this I don’t know what I can do. I train, I’m ready.”

    “I am not satisfied and I cannot be. In my career I have never accepted the idea of ​​not playing and now I do not either. 

    “We will see, I am ready, I train well and I hope, I have no other choice. It is a very delicate situation. It doesn’t suit me.”
