Cardiff City may very well decide to cash in

Cardiff City may very well decide to cash in on the interest from Italian Serie A on one of their strikers,Federico Macheda.

The Italian has not been seen in his home country since his time with Sampdoria. After spending a few months on loan at Cardiff City, the former Manchester United man decided to call the championship outfit as his home. However, the presence of many strikers at the disposal of manager Russell Slade is likely to see Macheda leaving the club before the end of this transfer window.Frosinone are the latest club to join the Italian Serie A after being promoted from the second division.

Federico Macheda believes same as Ravel Morrison

Former Manchester United striker Federico Machedabelieves that Ravel Morrison has what it takes to become a success in Italian football.

Morrison has a bad boy reputation in England and he has never done well at any of his previous club like West Ham and Manchester United. However, he has shown flashes of brilliance from time to time and he is still regarded as one of the top English talents in the world today.Macheda backs his former United teammate to rediscover his love for the game. Morrison will be moving to Italian outfit Lazio, a club whereMacheda started his career, in the summer.

Federico Macheda back in Form

Former Manchester striker Federico Macheda looks to be back in the reckoning to start a match for Cardiff City after manager Russell Slade stated that the Italian deserves some game time.

After making his move to Cardiff permanent in the summer,Macheda has been looking to kickstart his career. His career has suffered immensely over the last couple of years due to injuries, but he seems to be over those issues of late. Still, it has not helped him regain his form. After managing to put in a great performance in the match against Rotherdam,Macheda appears to have done enough to convince Slade.

Federico Macheda signed by Cardiff City

After not being able to turn into an important figure in Old Trafford despite being a player of Manchester United for over 5 seasons, Federico Macheda was released by the Premier League club and was signed on a free transfer by Cardiff City.

Upon joining Cardiff City, his time in the playing grounds of his new club have been much greater compared to when he used to be a player of Manchester United and the Italian forward is optimistic that he can score at least 15 goals with his new team but at the same time, Macheda is also aware that Cardiff City are not the favorites on winning the English Championship League title.

Federico Macheda looking for promotion this year

Former Manchester United striker Federico Macheda says that he wants to return to the Premier League by getting promotion with Cardiff this season.

The Italian moved on a permanent basis to Cardiff last January. Even though the departure of former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer threatened to disrupt his season once again, he has been able to establish himself as first choice player under new boss Russell Slade. The 23-year-old has been able to feature in 12 league matches this season and he has three goals. Even though his goal return has not been spectacular, it has been enough to keep Cardiff in the mix for a play-off spot.

Macheda Unlikely To Be Fit For Midweek Match

Cardiff City manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has stated that summer signing from Federico Macheda is unlikely to be fit for the midweek match against Coventry City in the League Cup. Cardiff come on the back of a 1-1 draw with Blackburn Rovers on the opening day of the Championship. Despite being a tough away match, Cardiff managed to take the lead in the first half through former Stoke City striker Kenwyne Jones. The forward has dropped down the division in order to get regular first-team football, but he has shown no signs of fading in quality.

Prandelli Quits!

The manager of the Italian national football team, Cesare Prandelli, has quit from his position after his team’s dismal outing in the FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

Italy was slotted in a very tough Group D, but, considering their potential, they were expected to be through. They started without any hiccups as they secured three points in their first match against England quite clinically, but, that was that for them.

Two successive loses thereafter ensured the completion of their campaign and they made their way back home completely humiliated yesterday.

Solskjaer Delighted About Fondre Signing

Cardiff city manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer stated that he is extremely delighted with the signing of Adam le Fondre so much so that he has compared the striker with himself at Manchester United. Solskjaer is regarded as one of the great players to have represented United in the last decade. He may not have started most matches for United, but the Norwegian was more than happy with a place on the bench and to create an impact in the last few minutes of the match.

Sherwood Stepping Down After 5 months

Despite all of Tim Sherwood’s effort to avoid getting relegated from his position as the head coach of Tottenham, it has already been confirmed and announced that Sherwood had to step down from the position he held after only 5 months.

The chairman of Tottenham Daniel Levy confirmed the announcement as he released a statement to the public which said:

Levy said: “We appointed Tim mid-season as someone who knew both the players and the Club. We agreed an 18-month contract with a break clause at the end of the season and we have now exercised that option’’.

Frank de Boer is a genuine candidate on becoming the coach of Tottenham but recent news and rumors are suggesting that Sampdoria’s Sinisa Mihajlovic is another likely option.


Birmingham city assistant manager Steve Watson has come out in praise of Manchester United striker Federico Macheda, who has been playing for the club in the last few weeks after coming on a loan deal from Old Trafford.

The striker has been in fine form since coming to the blues and he continued his form with two more goals against Doncaster Rovers. The double either side of a goal from Novak helped Birmingham stage a comeback after going a goal down early in the first half. The win has eased in a relegation fears for the moment and this led to the praise from Watson.
