Manchester United Striker Federico Macheda Excludes Lazio Return

Manchester United hitman Federico Macheda will not spoil his chances at Old Trafford by returning to Lazio.

Reports around the peninsula last week claimed the Aquilotti, who lead Serie A, had reached an agreement with United for Macheda to return.

However, Macheda, who is with the Italian under-21 side, maintains he is not keen on a new stretch with his old side.

Asked whether he was in line to return to Lazio, the striker told "No, I don't think so."

He was also delighted with the faith displayed by coach Sir Alex Ferguson.

"What can I say? It's very nice when you hear nice things from a coach with the charisma and history of Ferguson," he said.
