Currently on loan at Rio Ave, Bebe has given a revealing interview to Portuguse website Mais Futebol today, where he reveals what it was like to play for Manchester United after being plucked from obscurity at Vitória de Guimarães.
Bebe says he wants to return to Manchester United at the end of the season, alongside the caveat that he is looking to play regular first team football.
He adds that the Manchester United coaching staff have been happy with how he is playing and progressing at Rio Ave.
The highlights of the interview were translated on Twitter by Portuguese journalist João Ruela, and are copied below.
“I never took Manchester United seriously and never understood a word about what Alex Ferguson was saying.”
“Alex Ferguson asked me to cut my hair. I did it, but in the next day i’ve passed around him many times and he didn’t recognize me.”
“Alex Ferguson is always complaining with Nani. Maybe because he always expected him to be the new Cristiano Ronaldo.”
“One day I’ve passed the ball through Ryan Giggs’ legs. And he told me: ‘Go on, go tell your mother you did this to Ryan Giggs’.”
Bebe’s one and only goal for Rio Ave, a super special solo Golazo against Academica in February, is below.
