‘Seoul Monkey Ceremony, colleague Park Ji-sung’s soccer inheritance → 17-year-old Manchester United debut ‘prodigy’ → 12 teams ‘Journeyman’

14 years ago, July 24, 2009, Sangam WorldCom Stadium in Seoul. Federico Makeda, an 18-year-old star of Manchester United in the English Premier League, scored a goal in a friendly match against FC Seoul held on the day.

However, Makeda’s goal celebration angered him. It was a ‘monkey ceremony’ that belittles Asians. Fans accused him of racial demeaning.

In the end, Manchester United said on its homepage four days later, ‘Makeda’s goal ceremony means that fans should cheer with a louder voice for his goal at the decisive moment of the game. It was an attempt to liven up the atmosphere,” he said. “Everyone at the club is deeply grateful for the convenience and passionate support provided by the fans they met in Seoul, and it can’t be that there were any bad connotations. However, the club apologized by posting a statement saying, “We apologize for giving the fans misunderstanding.”

It is said that Makeda, the protagonist of the scene that soccer fans clearly remember, wore the 12th professional uniform this year. Once a divinity of Man United, Makeda, who ate together with Park Ji-sung, raises questions about how he had to transfer 12 times in the 15 years of his debut.

The British media reported on the 26th that ‘Man United’s hero completed his transfer to the 12th club. Do you know who it is?’ That’s Makeda.

The 32-year-old Makeda, who is second in the Mediterranean Cypriot First Division, said the 31-year-old has signed with APOEL, second in the Cypriot First Division. He is one point behind current leaders AEK Larnaca. Perhaps it is read as a will to win a come-from-behind victory by recruiting him as a striker.

Makeda was a prodigy who made his United debut in 2018 at the age of 17. Especially in 2009, he became the hero of Manchester United by scoring the winning goal in both matches. 메이저놀이터

But he didn’t shine much after that. He played 36 matches for United until 2014, but scored only 5 goals. Eventually, he moved to Cardiff City in 2014.

Of course, in the meantime, he played an active part in various teams on loan. Starting with Sampdoria, Italy, he toured Queens Park Residences, Stuttgart, Doncaster and Birmingham City.

After two seasons at Cardiff City, Makeda was loaned out to Nottingham before moving to Italy’s Novara Calcio, then to Panathinaikos in Greece and then to Ankaraguij in Turkey.

And he moved again this year to his 12th team, Greek Apoel. He moved the team 12 times in 15 years, including the Manchester United uniform. APOEL said: “We have agreed to rent him with the Turkish team. Until May, Makeda is our player.” “Makeda was born on August 22, 1991 and is active as a central striker. He chose his number 91 shirt.”

Transferred to APOEL based in Cyprus, he received the number 91 uniform. Number 91 is the year of the year he was born.
