United’s on loan winger Bebe has been ruled out for six months with cruciate ligament damage according to his new club Besiktas.
The Guardian reports:
Manchester United’s on-loan winger Bébé has torn his anterior cruciate ligament, Besiktas have announced.
The injury, suffered during the Portugal Under-21s match in Slovakia on Tuesday, is expected to keep Bébé out of action for around six months.
A statement on the official website of Besiktas, where the 21-year-old was on a season-long loan, said they had contacted United to discuss where the operation should take place.
Besiktas said: R20;A scan has shown an anterior cruciate ligament tear to his left knee and he will be unable to play for six months.
R20;Surgery is required and we have contacted Manchester United and there will be a joint decision about where the operation will be done.”
Although Bebe has been ridiculed by many in the British press, the lad definitely deserves a bit of luck and this injury comes at a time when it looked as though his loan spell may have been the perfect move for him.
