Alex Ferguson Gesture To Federico Macheda Shows Former Man Utd Boss' Class

It's likely that until his dying day, no matter else he does, Federico Macheda will be remembered for that turn, shot and breaking Martin Tyler's voice on that April day seven years ago.


After that game-winning appearance against Aston Villa, the Italian's career never took off. He would spend time on loan at several clubs before eventually being released by Man Utd in 2014. He joined Cardiff shortly after but was let go by the club in August of this year.

Earlier this month, he joined Serie B side Novara. The 25-year-old spoke on Facebook about the move, revealing that Alex Ferguson, who gave him his debut for Man Utd, recently called him to ask how his career was going.

Sir Alex Ferguson is a great person and has taught me so much. He called me three weeks ago to see how I was and how my career is going. He coached the greatest players in history, and the fact that he thinks about me makes me proud.

Macheda said that the new move marks a fresh start for his career.

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.
