Neil Redfearn on the signing of Luciano Becchio...
Manager Neil Redfearn says that new signing Luciano Becchio ‘looks the part’ after the Argentine concluded his return to AESSEAL New York Stadium this afternoon.
The striker has signed a deal with the Millers until the end of the season after impressing during training over the past fortnight.
The 32-year-old former Leeds United favourite enjoyed a loan spell with the Millers last season where he netted twice in five appearances.
Now the ex-Norwich poacher has signed a permanent deal with the club, and Redfearn has been pleased with his improving fitness levels.
“He has got himself 120% fit now and he looks the part,” Redfearn told www.themillers.co.uk
“Luciano is a vastly experienced front man and a proven goalscorer. He is going to be a help to the other strikers at the club and from our point of view it is a great signing to get in.
“He’s got over his injury, he looks a lot fitter and he has looked after himself. It is a case now of getting him in a good place. We have got ourselves a real quality striker.”
Redfearn has utilised his new signing in behind closed doors games, and confirmed that his introduction into first team competitive action is likely to be a gradual one.
“He has taken part in some behind closed doors games but it might be the case that he comes in gradually,” Redfearn continued.
“He is in and around it now and the more he trains, the better chance he has of starting.
“He has been out of it for a while and I think he realised how much he missed it.
“He is still young enough to go on and have a good number of years, we have got him where we want him and now we have to utilise him the best we can.”
