Spain Under-21 star Bojan Krkic has left Barcelona with a parting shot for coach Pep Guardiola saying he was treated unfairly by the manager and hadn't spoken to him since the Champions League final win in May.

Barcelona agreed to sell Bojan to Italian giants Roma for €12 million on Friday and the 20-year-old admits he felt let down by Guardiola.

Bojan, who made over a century of league appearances for Barcelona, was rarely used last season following the summer arrival of David Villa and was furious at not playing any part in the 3-1 Champions League final win over Manchester United at Wembley stadium.

"As a fan Pep Guardiola is the best coach in the world, but personally things happened to me that hurt me and I can't say the same thing," Bojan said in a press conference.

"I haven't spoken with him since the Champions League final through my own choice.

"I am still smarting from the final in London. Winning the Champions League final was important to me and it hurt me a lot that I didn't play. It was the second time it happened to me.

"He (Guardiola) wasn't fair with me on several occasions and that is one of the reasons that I decided to leave.

"I spoke with Pep (Guardiola) a lot but things between him and I weren't very clear and what was clear was that I wasn't playing."

While Guardiola was happy for Bojan to head to Roma the coach still insisted on a buy-back clause whereby Barcelona can bring the youngster back to the Camp Nou for €13 million before the end of the 2012/13 season.
