The Bosnian international joined Ronald Koeman‘s team in a deal which saw Arthur Melo head to Juventus in the opposite direction.

However, despite initial hopes of the 30-year old forming a midfield unit with Sergio Busquets and Frenkie De Jong in 2020/21, he has started just five La Liga games.

Despite playing a restricted role, Pjanic insisted he is happy in Catalonia, but he is unsure about why he has seen so little game time.

“The exact reasons why I do not have the expected playing time, I do not know”, he told an interview with Telefoot, as reported by Marca.

“I will continue to work hard and we must respect the decisions that are be made, even if I do not agree, as I want to leave my mark on this club.”

The former AS Roma star admitted Barcelona face a real challenge in their Champions League clash with PSG, due to the French side’s determination to win the competition.

He claimed their ‘obligation’ to win Ligue 1 was similar to his previous situation in Turin, but admitted Barcelona have a strong chance of progressing into the quarter finals.
