Maccarone makes switch to Siena
Massimo Maccarone in action for Parma
Maccarone was not a success at Parma
Middlesbrough striker Massimo Maccarone has joined Italian side Siena on loan for the rest of the season.

Maccarone, 25, had been on loan at Parma but made few appearances for them and is delighted to be with Siena.

"I'm delighted because this is a return to Tuscany," Maccarone told Siena's website. This part of the country has always brought me luck.

"I saw my new team against Inter and they impressed me," he said of the 2-2 draw before Christmas.

Maccarone went on to explain why his move to Parma after two disappointing seasons at Boro had not worked out.

"At Parma I had weight problems when I signed for them," he said.

"I had to be very fit to play in the position they wanted me to play but sadly I wasn't in the best of shape."
