BĂ©bĂ© in Toylandâ€¦
Some of you, those stricken through with red and fire, may remember BĂ©bĂ© . The homeless teenager who makes good by signing with the worlds biggest football club for ÂŁ7 million.
Abandoned by his parents at a young age, BĂ©bĂ© grew up in a homeless shelter near Lisbon. He began his football career as an amateur with Loures before joining Estrela in 2009. A year later, he was signed by VitĂłria de GuimarĂŁes but transferred almost immediately to Manchester United for a fee of about ÂŁ7 million, despite manager Alex Ferguson admitting he had never seen BĂ©bĂ© play.
Those of you who do not remember him, it is because the next chapter of his story did not continue with the same fairy-tale quality as the latter. He never managed to break into the Man. Utd. team, and instead has plied his trade for smaller teams in lower leagues on loan.
Which brings us to today - surely the BĂ©bĂ© saga cannot be over - if he can still score goals like this:
A skillful back-heel and a thrifty direct strike is the stuff of legend. If he can do that at Carrington (Manchester Unitedâ€™s vaunted training ground, also known as Trafford Training Center) then Moyeâ€™s can check one presumed acquisition of his rather long â€śto doâ€ť list.
