FERGIE BELIEVES

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has said that he has complete faith in youngster Federico Macheda, whose loan spell with Premier league club QPR has been cut short due to an injury.

He has now returned to Manchester United will be undergoing treatment in order to return when the pre-season begins in the summer. Federico Macheda was signed by former QPR manager Neil Warnock in a move which was seen as the last hope for the Italian, who has failed to impress Sir Alex Ferguson in various loan spells. However, Ferguson has reiterated that he has complete faith in Macheda even though his loan spell has been cut short.

Immediately after the arrival of Macheda, Neil Warnock was sacked as the QPR manager. His replacement, Mark Hughes, has not seen Macheda as someone who can lead the line at the relegation threatened club. This coupled with the arrival of a number of players like Cisse has meant that the opportunities have been limited for Macheda. Now, the long term injury suffered by the Italian has prematurely brought an end to the loan spell. Ferguson revealed that Macheda will be undergoing surgery in order to recover from the injury problem.

HUGHES WILL REVIEW MACHEDA TWEET

QPR manager Mark Hughes has said that he will be looking at the tweet made by QPR striker Federico Macheda after the match against Everton recently. Federico Macheda made an abusive comment after being left out of the squad that was set to face Everton.

QPR came into the match against Everton knowing that they should make use of their home matches much better than they have done in recent past. However, manager Mark Hughes was coming under intense pressure after failing to change the fortunes of the club after arriving at the start of the January transfer window and spending heavily to spice up the team.

Mark Hughes has only two wins out of the eight matches he has been manager of QPR. This abysmal record would have provided Everton with a major hope of getting something from the fixture at Loftus Road. However, they were disappointed as QPR managed to come into the match and claimed a credible draw. Federico Macheda was not part of the QPR side that took on Everton at the Loftus Road.

MACKIE MAKES AN IMPRESSION

QPR striker Jamie Mackie has said that fellow QPR striker Cissé will find it hard to get back into the first-team due to his good form. Jamie Mackie scored twice for QPR in the 3-2 defeat at the hands of Blackburn Rovers last weekend. Even though it did not help QPR to get anything from the match, it at least showed Mark Hughes that he has a striker who is capable of putting the ball in the back of the net. Scoring goals has been a major problem for QPR under Neil Warnock, and it is a problem that has grown under Mark Hughes.

The arrival of Jamie Mackie up front, though, is expected to solve the problems for QPR at least now. The London club spent heavily on bringing in several players during the January transfer window. It has been estimated that they have spent close to around £ 15 million in the January transfer window alone, with the owner promising even more significant funds in the summer. Most of the players who have been signed by QPR now are strikers, which clearly shows the priority for the remainder of the season. The promise shown by Jamie Mackie will be extremely delightful for manager Mark Hughes.

“I was delighted to be up front too as I haven’t been playing there much. I’ll play wherever I’m told, but I feel my best position is up front, and that is where I can benefit the team most. When you spend a long time on the sidelines like I did, you get to work on other parts of your game, and I did spend a lot of time working in the gym,” Jamie Mackie said after the match against Blackburn. QPR will be up against Fulham in their next match.

FERNANDES WANT MORE FIGHT

QPR owner Tony Fernandes has said that he wants to see more fight from the players over the next few matches. QPR owner Tony Fernandes sacked manager Neil Warnock and appointed former Manchester City manager Mark Hughes in his place.

Even more than the appointment, the transfer funds promised by the Malaysian owner surprised a lot of people. He initially promised a transfer budget of around £ 20 million. Those who were expecting false promises from the new QPR owner were disappointed after the London club spent approximately around £ 15 million in strengthening the squad in various departments.

Players like Nedum Onuoha, Cisse, Taye Taiwo, and Federico Macheda arrived in the January transfer window. Big things were expected of QPR following the arrival of these players. However, the reality of the situation has been totally different, as Mark Hughes has been unable to get the results so far.

This has led to intense speculation that Mark Hughes may be relieved of his post in the summer. This is because it will be the second time the former Chelsea player would have failed with significant transfer budget at his disposal unlike at Blackburn Rovers and Fulham.

MACHEDA HAS A NEW MANAGER

Federico Macheda arrived on loan to his new club QPR and immediately found himself at the mercy of new manager Mark Hughes. Immediately upon his arrival, QPR decided to sack the man who was responsible for bringing him to London in the first place – Neil Warnock.

However, the Italian has said that he simply wants to impress Sir Alex Ferguson more than anybody else and will be looking to work harder for QPR over the next few months. Mark Hughes will certainly be taking a look at Federico Macheda given that QPR have been struggling to score goals at home this season.

The six-month loan deal will provide Federico Macheda with a great opportunity to show Sir Alex Ferguson that he is good enough to play in the Premier League. Despite spending the last two years out on loan, Federico Macheda is still relatively young at just 19 years of age. He knows that he needs to excel at QPR in order to get any chance of playing regularly at Manchester United.

MACHEDA NEEDS TO TAKE HIS CHANCE

Manchester United youngster Federico Macheda believes that he needs to step up his game if he is to have a future at The Red Devils. The 20 year old Italian has been loaned out by manager Sir Alex Ferguson to Queens Park Rangers so that he could learn the game under manager Neil Warnock.

But with the sacking of Warnock and the arrival of Mark Hughes as new manager, Sir Alex’s plans seem to have gone astray. However, the Italy Under-21 international believes that it will not be a problem as Sparky, being a former Manchester United player having played under Sir Alex for 9 years, will know exactly the same as Sir Alex.

The youngster has endured a frustrating couple of years at Old Trafford after bursting onto the scene with the winning goal against Aston Villa in a 3-2 win in the dying minutes of the match, a game that went a long way in deciding the fate of the title that season. Macheda was sent out on loan to Italian club Sampdoria in January last season but he could not get enough games there and the club ended up being relegated.

MACHEDA JOINS QPR ON LOAN

Manchester United striker Federico Macheda has moved to QPR on a loan deal till the end of the season at the start of the January transfer window.

He was initially expected to become a first team regular at Manchester United after his goal scoring debut against Aston Villa in 2009. However, things have not worked out in the same way for the Italian. He has endured a frustrating spell at Manchester United recently and there has been talk of him moving away from the club permanently. He spent last season on loan at Italian club Sampdoria, but it has failed to make an impression on manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

As a result, the Italian has admitted that he will be considering his future when he completes his spell with QPR. In order to show his manager that he is capable of playing in the Premier league, Federico Macheda has stated that he will be stepping up his game another notch at QPR. QPR are in need of goals at the moment in order to get away from the relegation zone. Federico Macheda says that he is hoping that he will be the one to provide that. New manager Mark Hughes will be taking a look at Federico Macheda before deciding on the reinforcements required in the January transfer window.

“No, no, no, I don’t worry. I couldn’t help them stay in Serie A because the problem was another thing. The team did not work well and there was another situation different to here. In Italy everything is difficult and I never really played as well,” he said when asked about his failure to keep Sampdoria from relegation. QPR are just one point above the drop zone and they are looking for only their second home win of the season.
