Bebe impresses watching Manchester United scout

Published Add your comment

Manchester United flop Bebe impressed a visiting Old Trafford scout at the weekend - and admitted he's in the form of his life.

The United forward, currently on loan with Pacos de Ferreira in the Portuguese top flight, scored two goals in the 3-1 victory over Arouca.

Aided by Bebe's four goals in as many games, Pacos de Ferreira have climbed clear of the relegation zone with just six matches to play.

Bebe's brace included a goal of the year contender. The 23-year-old controlled the ball with a neat back-heel before smashing home the ball on the bounce.

Any hopes Bebe has of reviving his United career this summer are probably best described as "faint", although the United scout in Portugal on this occasion must have left impressed.

He was a figure of fun at Old Trafford before his departure, and another example of the power of super agent Jorge Mendes.

His £7.5m transfer from obscurity to the Premier League prompted questions from the off, and the concerns only grew after United fans got to see him in action.

But, away from the glare of the Premier League spotlight, he has flourished in a struggling team. In 17 league starts, he has seven goals - a record that leaves him as the club's top scorer this season.

And he believes he is currently currently enjoying something like the best form of his career.

"I'm going through a good period of form and I want to continue," Bebe told Portuguese newspaper A Bola.
