Fergie may give Macheda Boro start.

Summary: Sir Alex Ferguson is debating whether to hand Federico Macheda his first Premier League start at Middlesbrough on Saturday.

Sir Alex Ferguson is debating whether to hand Federico Macheda his first Premier League start at Middlesbrough on Saturday.

The Italian teenager has enjoyed an astonishing start to his United career, scoring winning goals against Aston Villa and Sunderland on his first two substitute appearances.

The 17-year-old was not as impressive when Ferguson handed him his first senior start in the FA Cup semi-final defeat to Everton earlier this month, but the former Lazio trainee is undoubtedly a player of immense promise.

Now Ferguson is considering whether to hand Macheda a start against Boro as he looks to use the full depth of his squad in a week where United face Arsenal in the Champions League semi-final.

"I was delighted with Macheda's performance at Wembley," Ferguson insisted.

"Playing your first full game somewhere like that is very difficult but he has done fantastically well."
