Man United misfit Bebe compares himself to Cristiano Ronaldo

The Portuguese forward has likened his running and shooting style to that of his illustrious compatriot.

Former Manchester United winger Bebe has compared himself to illustrious countryman Cristiano Ronaldo, with the Red Devils misfit telling AS that he has the same running and shooting style as the Real Madrid superstar.

The 25-year-old is widely acknowledged as one of the Old Trafford outfit’s worst signings of a generation, with United splurging £7 million on the attacker.

However, over a four-year period on the historic English club’s books he only made two Premier League appearances and was reduced to a joke figure in the eyes of his own club’s supporters and that of others.

Since leaving Manchester, the forward has stepped out for Benfica and is currently on loan at Rayo Vallecano in Spain.

With Bebe showing some signs of improvement in La Liga, the Portuguese has spoken out about his idols.

The attacker has stated that Didier Drogba is someone he looks up to, while stating that he feels his style is similar to Cristiano Ronaldo.

“Drogba, but also Cristiano because he’s Portuguese,” Bebe told AS.

“I have the same way of running, and the same shooting style, he’s definitely a favourite.”

While Bebe is looked at with regret by the United fans, Ronaldo is deemed as one of the best players to step out for the Red Devils over the last generation.
