Bebe continued his fine start on loan at Portuguese club Rio Ave tonight by scoring the winner in a 2-1 victory last night.
He picked the ball up well outside the box before bursting into the penalty area and with some quick feet, he turned the defender inside out before slotting the ball through the goalkeepers legs with his left foot.
Bebe might not have had the most stratospheric of starts to his United career since his £7 million move but you can’t say that he hasn’t got talent with his goal showcasing great pace and lightning quick feet as well as a collected finish. Without getting way ahead of myself, his movement and acceleration for this goal certainly remind me of Ronaldo.
That makes it two goals Bebe’s first five appearances for Rio Ave including a fantastic goal on his debut as well as a man-of-the-match performance only last week. For all his inconsistency in England, Bebe is genuinely flourishing in Portugal. Maybe it is because he is back in his homeland but not being under the pressures of Premier League football has brought the best out of Bebe.
He still has a long way to go to convince United fans that he is worth the £7 million that was forked out for him despite Sir Alex Ferguson never seeing him play but if he can continue his loan spell at Rio Ave in the same form he has started it, fans and Ferguson alike might have to re-think their opinion on Bebe.
