Federico Macheda Admits He Has To Shine At Doncaster

Federico Macheda admits he needs to get his career back on track at Doncaster or face the football scrapheap.

The Manchester United striker looked set for a glittering career when, as a 17-year-old, he scored a dramatic debut late clincher in a 3-2 win over Aston Villa in 2009.

That goal helped keep the Reds' title charge on course and he netted the winner in a 2-1 victory over Sunderland the following week.

But since those glory days as a teenager, Macheda's career has stuttered amidst a series of failed loans.

He started just three league games when at Sampdoria and was reduced to a role as a bench warmer at QPR and Stuttgart.

Now, with his Old Trafford contract running out in the summer, Macheda, 22, admits he needs to start firing again.

He said: "It is not easy to play for Manchester United, so you have to go somewhere else to show your ability.

"I need to get my career back on track because I have been out on loan and I had a bad experience with loans.

"This is a great opportunity to get my career back on track and I want to do well.

"I will keep working and I am confident about this loan.

"I have a one-year contract with Manchester United. Nobody knows the future so the most important thing is to think about myself.

"I need to play regularly now and we will see at the end of the season."

Macheda puts his barren spell of the last two seasons down to a run of bad luck at loan clubs.

He added: "When I've been on loan before, I have gone to a club and they sack the manager and the new manager brings three or four players in.

"That happened twice.

"Now I am at Doncaster, I would be interested in staying here for three months. If there is a chance to stay to January it would be great."
