Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed Bebe will make his Manchester United debut in Wednesday's Carling Cup tie at Scunthorpe United.
The move to United capped a meteoric rise in Bebe's career and he is now primed to make his first appearance for the Premier League giants.
Ferguson is keen to give several of his younger players a chance at Scunthorpe as United start their quest to win the Carling Cup for the third successive season.
"We played a lot of young players last season and they all acquitted themselves well," Ferguson told the club's official website. "We'll do the same at Scunthorpe.
"A lot of my young players will play. Bebe is training very well. He'll be involved tomorrow night. Federico Macheda will as well.
"The Carling Cup's served us well over the last few seasons - it allows me to keep everybody happy in terms of giving people games and we've reached the last two finals, which has its obvious advantages.
"Playing at Wembley and competing for medals on the big stage is terrific for players' development."
Meanwhile, Bebe is confident he can make an impact for United after making his first appearance for the reserves last week.
Bebe, who may start on the bench at Glanford Park, said: "I am going to be a brilliant player for United.
"Sir Alex is very happy with me and wants me to train more and get in the first team."
Interesting read, Id love to see this lad debut but I just have this gut feeling that if he fails, the media will unite to attack. So maybe a bench start won't be too bad. I hope Sir Alex fields the young guns, but we do need some experience out there so if Rio has recovered from the flu, he'll prob join Evans/Smalling in the center of defence while Id love to Wesley return to full fitness, so he can be used up in this match. Owen will most likely start, due to his lack of appearances this season, and maybe Ben Amos will show his potential tonight.
Its a bit of blunder 1st match, away from home against a lowly championship side, but we can't take them for granted because they will be fired up.
I predict a 3-1 scoreline to the reds, and here's my starting XI:
Fabio Ferdinand Smalling Brown
Park Gibson Anderson Obertan
GS - Hernandez, Owen & maybee Anderson ( highly unlikley but 1 can hope )
It'll be a good match, worth waking up @ 4 30 am probably not game wise, but waking up any time to watch United is bloody worth while.
Get in there United with those Scums a hamering. =)
