Watch former Man Utd flop Bebe score stunning Cristiano Ronaldo-style free-kick in Spanish 2nd division play-off

FORMER Manchester United winger Bebe drew on inspiration from Cristiano Ronaldo to give Rayo Vallecano a convincing win over Leganes on Thursday.

The Spanish sides met in the first leg of the Segunda Division play-off semi-final, with Rayo Vallecano winning 3-0.

Bebe failed to make an impression at Old Trafford, appearing just seven times for Manchester United

The tie was closely fought until the home side score three goals in the last 20 minutes, with Bebe grabbing two.

His first was exquisite, with the former Premier League ace taking on a defender before striking the ball left-footed under goalkeeper Asier Riesgo.

Riesgo may have let the error affect him as he was also partially at fault for Bebe’s second.

But the free-kick at the end of injury time was also a moment of magic.

Bebe hit a Ronaldo-esque free-kick from a very difficult angle, but the dip and swerve on the ball was enough to deceive the goalkeeper.

Fans were left in awe of the Portuguese winger, praising both his free-kick and the silky nutmeg on a defender in the build-up to his first goal.

Bebe has now scored six goals this season, and could be key to firing Rayo Vallecano back to La Liga after a two-year absence.

In the other semi-final, Girona host Almeria on Saturday and hold a three-goal advantage, so will likely meet Rayo Vallecano in the final.

An on-form Bebe could decide the outcome of that match, and earn a return to the Spanish top-flight for both Rayo Vallecano and the former Red Devil.
