Federico Macheda’s loan move to QPR was confirmed today ahead of his début against Norwich.

“There is a lot of competition at Manchester United, there are some very good strikers there,” Kiko said. “But I am still young and I need to get more experience in the Premier League. I am here to train hard firstly and then I hope to play a big part in the games.”

Macheda came on for Heidar Helguson with ten minutes remaining, although couldn’t do anything to save QPR from defeat, who went down to ten men following Joey Barton’s dismissal on 35 minutes.
