Baba wants to bounce straight back

Macclesfield Express - - WILDLIFE - SHELDAN KEAY

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.”
