Macheda: “I Can’t Wait To Get Involved”

16 September 2013

Rovers Official Website caught up with new loan signing from Manchester United, striker Federico Macheda at Cantley Park, ahead of the game against Watford.



The striker who made a big impact when he hit the Premier League scene as a youngster, scoring a cracking goal against Aston Villa, has joined Rovers for an initial one-month loan.


Macheda “I have waited quite while to make this move here, which is a great opportunity for me. I came here because I have seen and heard of the great football Paul (Dickov) has been instrumental in playing here. The manager convinced me that this is an ambitious club with a great set up and a vision for the future. So I am looking forward now to playing my first game”

“I know after promotion last season, they want to keep progressing and moving forward. I feel this is a good move to get my career back on track and here I will have more opportunity to play league football.  It will be good for me and also I hope is good for the team. I had a few offers both in the Championship and abroad but I felt the Championship is the place for me right now especially to a club who really wanted me”

“I watched the team for the first time last Saturday against Huddersfield and I was impressed with the type of football they played. I can’t wait to be involved in this team and get to play football. I want to help the team win”

“I have been training every day at United and feel very fit. I have played games there and I have come here today to train which I enjoyed. Paul is a very good manager who I feel I can gain from his coaching methods. I have had a fantastic time at Manchester but now I only look at what I can do here for Rovers”
