When he returned to Barcelona last summer after a season on loan at Ajax, little did Bojan Krkic know that within six months he would find himself playing at Spotlands, home of League One side Rochdale.

The 24-year-old may no longer be the future of Spanish football, but as this stunning volley in the FA Cup third round demonstrated, he is still capable of producing moments of magic.
