Nutmegging Macheda and beating Kagawa in a race – The perfect first day at Manchester United

First days in a new place of work can be daunting. One of those days in a post-school life that can fill you with dread the night before, sweating with worry about how it will all play out. Now imagine your first day is at the biggest club in the world.

Manchester United.

Well, for Mick ‘Baz’ Rathbone he needn’t have worried at all because his first day at Carrington could not have gone any better.

Nutmegging Federico Macheda. Defeating Shinji Kagawa in a race. Leaving a group of new players you’ve been tasked to watch over in stitches. To top it all off with the biggest cherry possible, Sir Alex Ferguson has read your book.

Not a bad start at all but, sadly, the subsequent two years wouldn’t go quite as smoothly. All of it down to, as he admits freely, Rathbone himself.
