WILL RASHFORD FLOURISH THIS TERM?

Manchester United luredRomeluLukaku from Everton FC and could add Ivan Perisic this summer.


Jose Mourinho has decided to retain Anthony Martial and there is the club’s top prospect Marcus Rashford. Will the Three Lions’ star flourish this term as he has in the past two seasons?

Rashford was decisive last term and he helped the team generally despite not banging in the goals as many expected. He is not anywhere close to the likes of Ruud van Nistelrooy, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer, Carlos Tevez or Robin van Persie. His composure, finishing and one-chance accuracy are still off the mark but there is hope.

For the first time in a while, Mourinho could play two strikers upfront in the forthcoming season. As a lone striker, the young Marcus was largely isolated upfront, preferring to rely on his speed. Continue reading “WILL RASHFORD FLOURISH THIS TERM?”

WHAT NEXT WTH VINICIUS JUNIOR?

Real Madrid spent £38.7 million on South American youngster Vinicius Junior recently.


There have been endless compilations of the player’s brilliance to explain why Madrid made the move. He is officially one of the most expensive youth players of all times.

Many predict that he is the future ‘Galaticos’ at the Bernabeu but have we not heard that story too many times? Norwegian star Martin Odegaard was celebrated as much when he moved to Madrid in 2015. He was expected to play in the Team B with Zinedine Zidane coaching and also with the senior team. The end result is that he is a winner of the 2015/16 Champions League without kicking the ball at all. He is rotting away somewhere playing on loan.

BojanKrkic was the same thing at Barcelona. He even scored ten goals in his debut season at NouCamp, many labelled him the new Lionel Messi. After many years, he is on a loan deal at Mainz 05 after time at Milan, Ajax and Stoke City.

Manchester United had theirs in Federico Macheda. The 17-year old entered the Premier League with a bang, helping the club secure the title against Liverpool. He currently plays in the Serie B in Italy after years of failure. Continue reading “WHAT NEXT WTH VINICIUS JUNIOR?”

MACHEDA REVEALS FERGUSON CALL

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.   Continue reading “MACHEDA REVEALS FERGUSON CALL”

MachedaUnaware of Any Interest from Napoli

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.
