STRIKER Macauley Bonne says he feels at home as a QPR player already.
The 24-year-old – who joined the R’s for an undisclosed fee from Charlton Athletic on October 2nd – scored a 96th-minute equaliser at Sheffield Wednesday just 24 hours after joining the club.
And speaking to the club’s podcast, The Loftcast, earlier this week, he revealed how scoring up at Hillsborough has made him feel incredibly settled in his new surroundings.
“The deal had been in the pipeline for a few weeks and for it to get over the line and then to score within about 24 hours of joining, it was a dream start,” said Bonne, who likes to be known as ‘Macca’.

“When I came on, the gaffer said ‘go and do something’ and that’s the biggest pressure you can have from a manager when he throws you on for your debut. I knew I had to be a spark.
“As it was my debut, I wanted to make an impact even more to break the ice with the fans and my teammates, the staff and everyone connected with the club.
“It was a great feeling and, scoring the goal, the journey home with the boys was obviously more upbeat that it otherwise would’ve been and at training this week I haven’t felt like the new kid anymore.
“Everyone at the club has been really welcoming and taken time to get to know me, and I feel really comfortable.”
