Already justifying his fee

Tiago Bebe Was A Superb Buy For Manchester United. I have to praise the signing of this young starlet who is hotly tipped to have a bright future at Manchester United.

The stats speak for themselves. In 7 appearances for Manchester United, 3 of which were starts, Bebe has scored 2 goals this season. That is a strike rate of around 29% for the highly rated right winger. This stat is definitely highlighted more when you consider Nani, the Manchester United Player’s Player of the Year 2011, has a strike rate which only stands at 17.5%.

In addition to this, the transfer price of £7.5million is seen as a complete bargain to me if compared to Fernando Torres, the £50million hitman who has made 17 appearances for Chelsea yielding only 1 solitary goal. I would be so bold as to say that Bebe is probably Manchester United’s best buy since the signing of Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez. The Homeless World Cup’s player of the tournament has also scored a goal in the most prestigious tournament in Europe, the Champions League, helping Manchester United set up a meeting with Barcelona at Wembley.

Touted as a star of the future, his star has definitely been shining in Europe’s premier competition where he has outscored both Fernando Torres and fellow Manchester United teammate Michael Owen having made only 1 substitute appearance for a meagre half an hour in the tournament. He has also scored more goals than Steven Gerrard and Carlos Tevez in this seasons Champions League, a major feat in itself.

I do feel that Sir Alex Ferguson has a big decision on his hands soon with the Blackpool game coming up. However tempted he may be to play Bebe on Sunday afternoon, I feel he will be hard pressed to rest him for the final of the Champions League. Such an occasion could surely only bring out the best in Bebe… and Obertan and Gibson. He was only just pipped to the finishing line for Manchester United’s reserve player of the year award by the promising Oliver Gill. I can only put that down to sheer bad luck for Tiago Bebe, something that has been following him for a large proportion of his life.

In Novemeber of last year I remember that ran an article on their website that “Bebe Is Proving Too Fast And Too Strong Not To Make A Name For Himself At Manchester United.” Personally I am tempted to agree. In the very few appearances that he has made this season he has excelled and I can only predict that due to his raw footballing talent, once shaped into a Michaelangelo-esque statue, he can only get better and better. The world is his oyster.
