Italian duo added to Reds’ Champions League squad

Posted by nickogs20 on February 3, 2009

Sir Alex Ferguson has added Federico Macheda and Davide Petrucci to United’s Champions League squad for the rest of the season.

The end of the January transfer window also sees clubs in Europe given the opportunity to make three changes to their registered UEFA ‘A’ list. Owen Hargreaves and Manucho were originally registered on that list back in September, but with the former ruled out for the season through injury and the latter spending the rest of the campaign on loan at Hull City, two spots have been freed up.

Those spots have been filled by Macheda and Petrucci. The 17 year-olds – so impressive in tandem recently at reserve and academy level – are the obvious choices, given their ineligibility for the ‘B’ list due to having not been registered with the club for two years. Macheda is already in possession of shirt number 41, and Petrucci has now been handed the number 43 shirt.

The full registered squad list now reads as follows:

1 Edwin van der Sar
12 Ben Foster
29 Tomasz Kuszczak
40 Ben Amos *

2 Gary Neville
3 Patrice Evra
5 Rio Ferdinand
6 Wes Brown
15 Nemanja Vidić
20 Fábio
21 Rafael

22 John O’Shea
23 Jonny Evans *
39 James Chester *
42 Richard Eckersley *

8 Anderson
11 Ryan Giggs
13 Ji-Sung Park
16 Michael Carrick
17 Nani
18 Paul Scholes
19 Daniel Welbeck *
24 Darren Fletcher
28 Darron Gibson *
34 Rodrigo Possebon
43 Davide Petrucci

7 Cristiano Ronaldo
9 Dimitar Berbatov
10 Wayne Rooney
32 Carlos Tévez
41 Federico Macheda

* = Player list B

    Macheda is only 17 too.
    He can’t be registered without a number, so yes. As the article says, he’s been given #43.
