Big Year For Cofie

20 February 2013

Check out the on-loan frontman's interview with #themag on Friday evening, when the Magpies take on Bury at Meadow Lane (7.45pm kick-off).

Succeeding at Meadow Lane is a must for John Cofie, as he looks to earn a longer deal with his parent club, Manchester United. 

Cofie joined Notts on an initial one-month youth loan earlier this month and is being closely watched by the Red Devils' scouts. 

The 20-year-old striker is currently in the final year of his contract at Old Trafford and is determined to prove that he has a future with the Premier League giants. 

Cofie told the club's official matchbook that he is loving life at Meadow Lane and would be happy to remain with the club until the end of the season, should the opportunity arise. 

However, his long-term objective is to compete with the likes of Wayne Rooney, Robin Van Persie and Danny Welbeck for a starting berth in Sir Alex Ferguson's attack. 

“I’m at United now so I’d love to play for their first team," he told #themag. 

"That’s my aim and I’m going to work hard and hopefully that can get me there. 

“Manchester United is a big club – the best club in the world, for me. 

"It’s really enjoyable to be there but obviously I’m still young and still learning how to play the game and adapt to it. 

“It’s a big year but I’m going to put in the graft and hopefully earn a new contract. 

"I’m happy to be here and I just want to get some games under my belt. 

“I’ve learnt a lot and hopefully I can carry on. 

"I wouldn’t mind staying until the end of the season if the club wants me to stay, as I’m enjoying it here.”

Find out why Cofie is getting so much stick from his teammates, the reason he is growing his hair and what he has to say about some random questions provided by fans.
