Macheda back in contention

05 March 2010 11:01
Federico Macheda is close to a return from injury and the Italian might find himself thrust straight back into first-team contention. With Michael Owen out for the season and Danny Welbeck loaned to Preston, Macheda's fitness has taken on a  new importance. They are dropping off at the moment but we have got some encouragement with players coming back, said Ferguson. Macheda starts training with the first team again next week which is also good news, particularly considering the loss of Michael. He is a good player to have back. So we have had some disappointments with some, and light at the end of the tunnel with other players. Do you think Macheda can do a job in the season run in? Have your say.
