Ten Hag is confident that Manchester United can manage without the injured Martinez. Federico Macheda’s career with Manchester United did not live up to the initial promise when he first burst onto the scene in 2009. His debut goal against Aston Villa in April 2009, however, is a memorable moment in the club’s history and contributed to another Premier League title win. This iconic moment is a strong argument against the possibility of constructing a new stadium on the land adjacent to the current Old Trafford.
The demolition of the stadium would mean the loss of cherished memories and legacy for millions of fans, including those who were part of creating those magical moments. Macheda, who contributed an iconic moment himself, opposes the reported deliberations over completely rebuilding the stadium. He believes that the structure and history of Old Trafford should be preserved, with improvements made instead. Macheda emphasized that despite potentially constructing a new stadium next to it, the current Old Trafford holds a special place for fans and has been the stage for numerous great games and memories.
