Two substitute appearances, two winning goals, Federico Macheda is an overnight star for Manchester United fans.
Following our 2-1 win over Sunderland this afternoon, Sir Alex Ferguson has praised Macheda for his quick-thinking and goal instinct.
“He has got something special about him, the boy,” Ferguson said. “I haven’t seen the goal, but one of the players said he actually tried it. He side-footed it as it came to him. It’s that quick-thinking that goalscorers have got. He has just got that instinct.”
