Manchester United name Bebe in Champions League squad

06 September 2010 02:00

Manchester United new-boy Bebe has made the Red Devils' Champions League squad after all.

United submitted their list of 25 players to UEFA last week, with Owen Hargreaves among the names excluded as Sir Alex Ferguson declined to take a chance on a player, who has experienced so many injury problems and is currently in the United States with no real idea when he will be back.

It seemed £7million Bebe had been left out too but UEFA have now confirmed the 20-year-old is on the list and would be available for Tuesday's opening game against Rangers at Old Trafford should Ferguson want him.

A more likely debut would be in the Carling Cup tie at Scunthorpe the following week, although even that cannot be taken for granted given Ferguson's recent comments about the player needing to increase his fitness levels.
