Viana Fails To Sink Man Utd

He arrived at St James' Park as a 19-year old and Sir Bobby Robson said he would become a "world beater".

But for Hugo Viana - it didn't quite work that way. Well, not in Newcastle United's black and white shirt, anyway.

On Tuesday he was involved in a thriller at Old Trafford and was ALMOST part of a side that beat Manchester United in their own back yard ... something Newcastle haven't done since 1972.

As it happens, United had to thank Javier Hernandez for keeping up their 100% start to this season's Champions League group stage.

Despite Alan giving Braga a two goal lead, United hit back thanks to the Mexican before Jonny Evans' equaliser and Chicharito's winner with 15 minutes remaining.

Born in Barcelos, Viana started his professional career at Sporting Clube de Portugal where he won the Young European Footballer of the Year award.

He signed for Bobby Robson's Newcastle United for €12 million, but never adapted to the hussle and bussle of the Premiership.

He played there for two seasons, scoring four times, against FK ┼Żeljezničar Sarajevo and Feyenoord in the UEFA Champions League and Birmingham City and West Bromwich Albion in the league.

However, Viana was unable to cement a starting XI position, and returned to Sporting on loan.

In his return he found his old form and enjoyed a successful spell, even helping the Lions to the season's UEFA Cup final.

He was a close friend of Gary Speed ... and he was gutted when the former Toon midfielder took his own life.
