Federico Macheda has found a settled home at Panathinaikos in the Greek Super League having been at the club for almost four years. The Italian striker burst into the scene as a teenager at Manchester United over a decade ago and he was expected to achieve great things back then. It’s safe to say that Macheda didn’t live up to those expectations.
Federico Macheda could not build on the foundation laid at Manchester United courtesy his successive match-winninggoals against Villa and Sunderland. He left the club in 2014 after several loan spells.
Macheda played for three more clubs after leaving Manchester United permanently before he signed for Panathinaikos in 2018. He is in his fourth season at the Greek club at the moment.
Federico Macheda made a landmark 100th league appearance for Panathinaikos against Giannina last month just before the Greek top flight went on a winter break. He came off the bench to play the final quarter against Gianninaas his team recorded a 2-0 home win. Macheda has 36 goals in 101 league games for Panathinaikos.
