Fed up: Macheda refused to blame the United players for this poor season
Federico Macheda has refused to lay the blame for Manchester United's poor season at the door of the players.

The Red Devils have struggled to adjust under David Moyes following Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement, and the champions are currently a whopping 18 points behind league leaders Chelsea in seventh.

They also trail fourth-placed Manchester City by 12 points and their hopes of playing in next season's Champions League realistically hinge on winning the tournament, but Moyes' side were beaten 2-0 by Olympiacos from the first leg in Greece last month.

The United striker, who is currently on loan at Championship side Birmingham City, is at a loss to explain the rapid decline, but stopped short of admonishing the squad for their performances.

Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, the Italian said: "It’s been very difficult, I don’t know the reasons why [they're struggling]. Are new players needed? Well yes, of course, but last season they won the title with the same team and now they’ve got Juan Mata.

“People say they need new signings but it’s still basically the same team that finished first last year. It’s a big gap to the top four but they could have a chance. This season the title has gone but there is always next season."

Macheda is out of contract at the end of the season, but with Moyes set to be begin a major phase of his Old Trafford restoration, it is unlikely the 22-year-old will be kept on
