Bebe Ruled Out For Six Months With Knee Injury

In sad news today, it’s come to light that Manchester United’s winger Bebe who is due to be on-loan at Besiktas this coming season faces six months on the sidelines after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament.

Bebe suffered the injury playing for Portugal’s U21’S in Slovakia last night and the injury could not have come at a worse time for the youngster as he was looking to make his mark in Turkey this season for his new club and gain invaluable first team experience.

Besiktas released the following statement on their website in the wake of today’s news:

“A scan has shown an anterior cruciate ligament tear to his left knee and he will be unable to play for six months.

“Surgery is required and we have contacted Manchester United and there will be a joint decision about where the operation will be done.”

Despite being at times a figure of fun for United supporters last season, it shall be interesting to see how he recovers from this injury set-back and whether he will play at all for Besiktas next season or remain at Carrington next season.

For such a young player with limited experience, he will need to show real mental strength to come back from this and without putting a positive on an injury, if he can come back and resume his playing-career at Old Trafford it could actually be the making of him.

Everyone at WAFU wishes the winger a quick and speedy recovery.
