Bebe suffers knee injury

Manchester United forward Bebe, currently on loan at Besiktas in Turkey, has suffered a serious knee injury and will face a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

Bebe tore his left anterior cruciate ligament in Portugal Under-21s' 1-1 draw against Slovakia on Tuesday night and will now require surgery to repair the damage to his left knee.

The 21-year-old joined the Turkish side on loan in June, with a view to staying for the duration of the 2011/12 season. It is unclear at this stage whether he will remain at Besiktas or undertake his rehabilitation in Manchester.
