Macheda Is Like A New Signing

Man United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has likened Manchester United youngster Federico Macheda to two new signings. Kiko made a few appearances for Man United last season and he scored two very important goals and Fergie believes that there is much more to come from him.

Fergie said:"We’ve got big hopes for Macheda – that’s one of the main reasons why we didn’t move [for someone else] in the market.

"He’s still only 17, but we’ve got great faith in the boy. He’s strong, aggressive and a terrific finisher, he’s got a lot of tremendous assets and is very much part of my pool of strikers though, along with Michael [Owen], Dimitar [Berbatov] and Wayne [Rooney].

"Of course, Federico played his part last season and scored two vital goals for us, but in essence he’s still just a young lad improving his game, so having him alongside Michael is like having two new players really."

I don't think it is much of a surprise to anyone that we will be seeing much more of Kiko Macheda this season but it is a slight surprise to me that we won't be buying anyone else upfront.

You never know though do you?
