Striking sensation effectively handed curfew!

Federico Macheda’s burgeoning social life has been dealt a severe blow by Sir Alex Ferguson. The Manchester United boss has reportedly telephoned Manchester’s nightclubs and casinos to advise them that the Italian striker will not be 18 until August.

The funniest part of the story is that Macheda is said to have found out the hard way. When the youngster tried to enter casinos 235 and The Circle Club, he was told by staff that Ferguson had warned them to refuse him membership!

A Man Utd source told the Sunday Mirror: “Fergie had someone call both clubs on his behalf and remind them that Federico is still under-age and should not be allowed in.”

    That is hilarious! Fergie sounds like a college coach making sure his players go to class and stay out of trouble!

    P.S. Doing little things like that is why he is such a great manager!

    That man Ferguson knows how to deal with them stars, doesn’t he? Absolutely priceless! 😀
