SAF on Macheda: "He is so unlucky, I have complete belief in the boy. He could be an outstanding player. But he needs football. We put him on loan to Sampdoria last January. He was there for two weeks, they sacked the coach and he doesn't get a game. We put him on loan to QPR. Two weeks later they sack the coach and he doesn't get a game. That has been really unfortunate. He has been bothered with his ankle a little bit over the last few weeks, so we have done the right thing to get an operation and hopefully he will be ready for next season"
