Federico Macheda on standby

Quote:The Italian burst onto the scene last year with an injury-time winner against Aston Villa on his debut to hand the Reds victory after back-to-back defeats to Liverpool and Fulham had threatened to derail United's title charge. Six days later he netted the winner at Sunderland to complete a fairytale week.

This season the Italy U21 international has been dogged by injuries, featuring just six times in the first team. Sir Alex said before Rooney's twisted ankle in Munich on Tuesday that Macheda should get further chances before the season is out. If Rooney is indeed sidelined then Macheda could well be fast-tracked into the first-team fold.

"Young Macheda’s had a terrible season with injuries," Sir Alex said in Munich. "But he made a return against Bolton last Saturday and we were absolutely delighted. He's one of the most exceptional young strikers I’ve seen in my time at United. He has every chance of taking part in big matches. His ability around the box for a young player is outstanding."

Interesting news from the main Man Utd website. What do you think of Macheda? Can he handle it?

we always have high Hopes over KiKO .... tat y he earned 4 years contact!!!!
he's one of te Big Star of MUFC in Future Wink
Although Kiko was used against Rovers this weekend, he looked a little lost and it seemed to me that there was no relationship between the sulky Berbatov and him. Berbatov had better watch out, though, as reports in the papers are suggesting he will be one of the first to go in the summer.

Kiko needs more top flight experience imo. There is no point in sending him on loan to a League 1 club or abroad, although there may be benefit in a top Championship club? Having said that, he can learn playing with the likes of Wazza and Owen when he's fit again.

Do we need to sign a couple of experienced strikers in the summer to help with the introduction of Kiko, though?
