Macheda’s Journey from a Footballer to a Mere Celebrity

Forward for Superleague Greece club Panathinaikos, Federico Macheda became a part of the football world with a whirl.

Macheda Makes Standout PErformance

Federico Macheda’s first match as a player of Cardiff City occurred during his clubs’ match against Port Vale in the Capital One Cup and the Italian forward made a standout performance in his debut game as he scored 2 goals which helped Cardiff City in sealing a hard fought 3-2 triumph over Port Vale.

The boss of Cardiff City, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer praised Macheda’s debut match as the Norwegian manager told reporters:  “When a striker scores two goals on his debut, that’s fantastic. First half we dominated possession… we don’t shoot enough, we don’t finish enough – we get into some great positions and we’re just a little bit shot-shy,”

It was a great way for Macheda to initiate his career in his new club, in a club that is aiming to make a return to the Premier League as they were playing in the top tier English League in the previous season but were relegated after finishing at the very last spot.

Cardiff City’s latest campaign in the Premier League saw them only managing to secure 7 triumphs in the entire season and the consistent series of negative results sparked a sequence of rumors stating that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was on the verge of being sacked as the coach of Cardiff City but the owner of the club, Vincent Tan gave the Norwegian one season for him to push the team and make a return to the Premier League.

The owner of Cardiff City, Vincent Tan said:  “I told Ole: ‘I want you to continue, but you have to bring us back to the Premier League next season. I will help you. I will support you.’”

Guido Burstaller, Javi Guerra, Adam Le Fondre, Federicho Macheda, Kagisho Dikgacoi, Charlie Horton, Tom Adeyemi, Danny Johnson, Anthony Pilkington and Sean Morrison are all of the players that were signed by Cardiff City as reinforments for the team that its main objective is to make a return to the top tier English League.
