Sir Alex Ferguson was very pleased with the goal and reckons that Macheda will be in our first team group of strikers this season.
“The goal Macheda scored was excellent,” said Ferguson. “The lad has a real chance. His movement is very good and he does well when he gets onto the shoulder of the last defender. He took his goal very well. It’s pleasing to see our strikers scoring – obviously the main players are Rooney, Berbatov and Owen and I’m very comfortable with that. But if Macheda continues his progress then it gives me a big advantage. An extra player like that will do us the world of good.”
