Baba wants to bounce straight back
NEW signing Noe Baba believes Macclesfield Town are the perfect club for him to rediscover his love of football after undergoing a disappointing period.
Baba became the Silkmen’s latest recruit when he put pen to paper on a one-year deal at the Moss Rose.
The 20-year-old made his debut for Macclesfield in the friendly against Bury, and was previously under contract at Birmingham City.
He left the club earlier in the summer, and now hopes to put that behind him by making an impact with Macc.
“Obviously I left Birmingham at the end of last season and that was a big disappointment for me,” he told the club’s official website.
“I went looking for somewhere to bounce back and I believe this football club is the perfect opportunity for me to rediscover my love of football again.
“That is the opportunity I have been given and I’m very grateful to everyone at Macclesfield Town for that.
“I’m going to be 21 next month, so, looking ahead I believe I am ready for first team football.
“It’s a good chance for me to bring my experience and everything I’ve learned here and show the fans what I can do.”
Baba can play in either midfield or defence, and he is happy to do a job for Macclesfield wherever called upon.
“I’m extremely versatile and I played everywhere when I was younger. To me, that was a very good experience,” he said.
It taught me how to read the game in various areas and develop into the player I am, but obviously, as I got older, I needed to be more disciplined and put myself into a position. However, main target is to make a central midfield spot my own.”
Baba arrives at Macclesfield at a time where more and more fans appear to be taking an interest in the club, and he wants to see as many as possible at matches.
“I really hope we can get as many fans at the games as possible because that’s extremely important to us,” he said.
“Ultimately, we play for the football club but we also play for their support. It would be great to get as many out here as we can.”
