VIDEO: Frenchman Mathieu Manset on the goal trail at Cheltenham Town

4 February 2015

Mathieu Manset is aiming to get back on the goal trail at Cheltenham Town after arriving on a deal until the end of the season on Tuesday.

The big Frenchman left League One Walsall on Monday and immediately joined Paul Buckle’s Robins, who he is hoping to help fire up the League Two table.

“The coach was the main reason I wanted to come here,” Manset said.

“It was all done very quickly, leaving Walsall on Monday and signing for Cheltenham on Tuesday.

“Hopefully I can bring goals and I am here to fight to help the team, I feel I can bring something else up front.

“One of my strengths is my size, but I also love to play football, with tricks and not just using my body.”

Manset scored a headed goal against Cheltenham for Hereford at Edgar Street in November 2010 and his impressive form for the Bulls earned him a move to Reading in January 2011.

He has since played for FC Sion, Carlisle United, Coventry City and Royal Antwerp before joining Walsall last summer.

“I first came to England at 19 and I’ve always enjoyed it here because the football is the best for me,” he said.

“I want to settle here, enjoy myself and score a lot of goals.

“We have had five new players come in this week so we need to lift the mood, get to know each other quickly and make sure we are ready against Burton Albion.”
