Federico Macheda arrived on loan to his new club QPR and immediately found himself at the mercy of new manager Mark Hughes. Immediately upon his arrival, QPR decided to sack the man who was responsible for bringing him to London in the first place – Neil Warnock.
However, the Italian has said that he simply wants to impress Sir Alex Ferguson more than anybody else and will be looking to work harder for QPR over the next few months. Mark Hughes will certainly be taking a look at Federico Macheda given that QPR have been struggling to score goals at home this season.
The six-month loan deal will provide Federico Macheda with a great opportunity to show Sir Alex Ferguson that he is good enough to play in the Premier League. Despite spending the last two years out on loan, Federico Macheda is still relatively young at just 19 years of age. He knows that he needs to excel at QPR in order to get any chance of playing regularly at Manchester United.
Federico Macheda scored on his debut for Manchester United, but has found himself on loan at various clubs during the last two years. He was linked with a move to Wigan athletic in the January transfer window, but decided to sign for QPR instead, in spite of the fact that the online Premier League odds think Wigan have the greater chance of staying up.
“I was only 17 then and I knew I could not play in every game. It has been difficult, but I don’t want to think about the past. Now I am here and I want to do very well here. I had a tough time. I didn’t get on the pitch many times but it is a good experience,” said Federico Macheda when asked about the prospect of spending six months at QPR. A number of current Manchester United players have become regulars after spending some time on loan.
