Federico Macheda kickstarted his loan spell in Birmingham City by scoring twice against Charlton and the player who made his way out of Manchester United until the end of the current campaign is optimistic that his new club is capable on finishing at the higher spots of the league.
“We have a good team with great young lads,” Macheda told BBC WM.
“With the quality we have, we look to finish as high as we can in the table.”
The 22 years old forward Macheda, still has not managed to find a spot in the main squad of Manchester United despite having switched managers and the club having offloaded players such as: Cristiano Ronaldo, Carlos Tevez and Dimitar Berbatov.
The unfortunate factor for Macheda is the fact that his situation in Manchester United is not going to change anytime soon as Moyes already has his attacking department filled up with Wayne Rooney, Van Persie and Juan Mata as those are the players that are consistently chosen in his starting lineup.
This situation has forced United on releasing Macheda on a number of loan deals to many clubs including: QPR, Stuttgart, Sampdoria and Doncaster Rovers.
“I have been at Man United for many years but I used to get on the pitch once or twice every month. So it is massive for me to play games. I try to score every game. I know it won’t happen.
I have no targets. I just hope the team does well.”
“I am on my last three or four months of my contract with United. I am on loan to impress. I have had loan spells that didn’t work, really. I went abroad and it didn’t really work. I went to Doncaster Rovers this season and now it’s Birmingham, I feel very comfortable’’. Macheda said.
