There was recently disappointment for Doncaster Rovers and Federico Macheda after the Manchester United striker, who have been on loan the Championship club, suffered an injury just weeks into his loan spell at the club. Doncaster had put a lot of faith in Macheda being fit until at least January in order to tide over their striker crisis. As a result of the injury, the 22-year-old Italian has returned to United in order to undergo treatment. Doncaster manager Paul Dickov, though, has said that he is keen on resurrecting the deal if the striker manages to get fit before January.

Macheda was initially set for a month-long stay at Doncaster, but it was cut short due to the hamstring injury. It is thought that he has impressed everyone at Doncaster sufficiently enough to warrant a second chance. Macheda has not been lucky when it comes to his loan spells because he has been unable to get regular game time for one reason or the other. In some of the loans spells, the manager who had brought him to the club would sacked or he would not settle at the club to show good form.

Doncaster recently managed a 4-0 win over Middlesbrough, but Dickov does not appear to be satisfied and wants to improve the squad even further.

“Kiko is getting closer to being fit again and although I have not spoken to United for a few weeks, I will be on the phone soon to see if we can get him back here as he was a big plus to the side with his eye for goal. I am always looking at how I can strengthen the side and this week I have been away a few days looking at players. If I see again what I saw on Friday night, I will look to bring in other players to play instead,” said Dickov.
