MAN UNITED AIMING FOR TOP FOUR

April 28th, 2017

Premier League giants Manchester United are aiming for a top four this season, and it would be a good season if they pull it off, considering how things went south at some point.


Liverpool are going to be their biggest challengers for the spot since Manchester City and Tottenham seem to have resigned to end behind Chelsea.

United were on sixth spot for such a long time that moving into fifth, with two games in hands, have opened up new hopes to get a Champions League spot. While they are still one of the leading sides to lift the Europa League, they could get an extra lifeline if they maintain their pressure on the top four spot.

Arsenal’s shock loss to West Brom and United’s victory over Middlesbrough opened up the race. Coach Jose Mourinho has publicly stated that he would love to get another trophy, that is, the Europa League instead of getting a guaranteed Champions League spot. The Portuguese tactician wants the title United have never won to add to the EFL Cup title he received ahead of Southampton.

United’s unbeaten run since Chelsea’s 4-0 humiliation has helped them to their current position after 27 games. In any other season in the past, the current pull of points could help United get Champions League spot but this season is different. Read the rest of this entry »

MACHEDA REVEALS FERGUSON CALL

December 20th, 2016

Manchester United failed prodigy Federico Macheda has revealed that former manager Sir Alex Ferguson called him to encourage him as he attempts to revive his football career.


The Italian player was a youth sensation during the early days of his career but he has failed to live up to the hype.

Macheda was released by Cardiff City after a disappointing run in August. The player managed to score eight goals after 33 games hence his release by the Bluebirds after two years.

“This will be a new beginning for me. I will take what has happened in the past with me but now only the present counts and the future.

“My goal is to do well from the start; I will have a couple of weeks when I will make a mini preparation to ensure my condition is optimal. My goal is to jump right in the squad,” Macheda wrote on his page on Facebook.

The player, who has spent time at Sampdoria, Queen Park Rangers, Vfb Stuggart, Doncaster Rovers and Birmingham City, was the youngster that got the winner for the Red Devils to seal the title in 2009 at the age of 17.   Read the rest of this entry »

MachedaUnaware of Any Interest from Napoli

November 18th, 2016

Former Manchester United striker Federico Machedawas widely expected to leave English football in the summer, but the move never happened.


After breaking through the ranks at Manchester United,Macheda made a spectacular start to his career at Old Trafford only to falter away slowly. He has played for several clubs like Stuttgart, QPR, Birmingham City, and Doncaster Rovers on loan deals before he permanently moved to the Cardiff City in 2014. This was expected to provide him with a foundation to build upon his career, as loan deals do not really help the player over the long-term.

This was not to be the case,as Macheda struggled even with the club that had just been relegated to the Championship. Playing in a division below the Premier League did not seem to help the striker and it was arrived at the conclusion that the player would benefit from a move back to Italy.

Currently playing with Cardiff City, the striker has never settled in English football after exploding onto the scene when playing for United.Macheda had one of the sensational first few matches for such a major club like United. However, he had been unable to keep up his reputation of scoring key goals and this led to one loan move after the other. Sir Alex Ferguson kept a lot of faith in the Italian striker before finally deciding to sell him in 2014.

The striker was expected to get some much needed regular first-team football at Cardiff. After having moved to the bluebirds on a free transfer,Macheda was given opportunities to impress. However, recurring injuries and poor form as a result of it meant thatMacheda’s form never improved. Following the club’s relegation to the Championship last season, Cardiff started looking at other alternatives and sent the player out on loan to Nottingham Forest in order to keep up his fitness levels. This summer,Macheda has reportedly been told by the club that he is free to leave. Read the rest of this entry »

Federico Macheda continues being dropped to the bench

May 10th, 2016

Federico Macheda’s career appears to have reached a new point in his career and not in a good way as the Italian attacker joined Nottingham Forest on a loan deal which was agreed back on March of the ongoing year.


One of the main reasons of why Macheda decided to join Nottingham Forest on a loan deal and make his way out of Cardiff City was to try and get more consistent playing time with the main team but this it hasn’t happened as the Italian player has had to settle with a place on the sidelines as a substitute player for the majority of the time that he has spent with Nottingham Forest.

Even after leaving Cardiff City and joining another club, Federico Macheda is struggling trying to find a regular spot in the main of whatever club he is performing in.

This is a huge turn of event for the player that stunned the world of football when he made his Premier League for Manchester United debut back on 2009. It was a dream debut for Federico Macheda as he scored the winning goal which helped Manchester United overcome Aston Villa with a superb goal and this was hugely impressive taking into consideration the fact that Macheda was 17 years old.

April 28th, 2016

Italian forward, Federico “Kiko” Macheda, who was widely touted as the future of English Premier League giant, Manchester united, has come out in support of young talent, Marcus Rashford.

The parent club of the 24 year-old is Cardiff City FC but currently his loan spree has taken him to Cardiff City.

After his poor run, his loan spree began. He has played on loan for Italian club Sampdoria, English championship team Queens Park Rangers (QPR), VfB Stuggart in Germany, UK team Doncaster Rovers FC and Birmingham.

After failing with Cardiff, where will Federico Macheda join?

January 28th, 2016

There was a time when Federico Macheda was hailed as being one of the brightest players to emerge from the youth academy of Manchester United. The Italian attacker made so many top performances with the Under-18 side that the club decided to offer him a professional contract when he was only 17 years old.

After having signed his first professional contract with Manchester United, Macheda was getting limited playing time with the Premier League as he was mostly serving as a substitute player and this is why he opted to join a number of different clubs with hopes of gaining more experience outside of Old Trafford.

Sampdoria, Queens Park Rangers, Stuttgart, Doncaster Rover, Birminham City are all of the clubs that Macheda joined on loan deals before eventually going on to sign a permanent deal with Cardiff City.

Macheda’s time in Cardiff City might be reaching it’s end as the head coach of the English club, Russell Slade is believed to be interested in letting the Italian forward go in the winter transfer window after failing to make any impressive performance.

Along with Federico Macheda, Alex Revell is another player who has not made any kind of impact in Cardiff City and the English forward is also rumored to be on his way out of the club after failing to impress the head coach Russell Slade.

Federico Macheda had to undergo a surgery in order to resolve a back problem that he was suffering; this made him unable to play for a considerable long time but even when the Italian attacker has been available to play fully recovered, his time in the pitch seems to be non-existant and his future is being linked with a move away from Cardiff City and the question that lies is where will he join if he leaves the English League Championship club?
