Federico Macheda wants to succeed at Nottingham Forest

Federico Macheda, who has just signed a loan deal with Nottingham Forest, wants to succeed at Nottingham Forest. The striker who is on loan from Cardiff City has joined Forest for the remainder of the season.

When asked how he feel about his new club, the former Manchester United player was keen to show that he felt at home at the club. He stated that Forest is a big club and with a big fan base and that he will be interested in staying there for the long term if ever he was offered the opportunity.

Macheda first came to the Premier League in 2009 and scored a sensational goal for Manchester United against Aston Villa. He was then 17 years old and pundits around the world predicted that the Italian striker will be a world class player.

Unfortunately for him, things did not go well, and he ended up having loan spells at different clubs. He returned to Italy on loan to Sampdoria before coming back to England where he went subsequently to Stuttgart, Doncaster and Birmingham. Ultimately he signed a permanent deal with Cardiff City.

However his Cardiff career has been plagued by injuries, and he did not have as much playing opportunities as he would have wanted. Now at Nottingham Forest, Macheda will be keen to forget his injury issue and focus on what he does best: score goals.

The Italian told journalists that Forest has good midfielders and that they will create enough chances for him to score goals. He believes that he still can fulfill the potential that he showed when he was younger and that Nottingham Forest is the best place to do so. For the time being he want to focus on the remaining game of the season and help Forest finish as high as they can.
