Manchester United No2 Mike Phelan felt Bebe showed enough in his debut to excite fans after their Carling Cup win at Scunthorpe United.

Phelan took charge of the team in Sir Alex Ferguson's absence, and was delighted with Bebe's contribution.

"The scoreline gave us the opportunity to give Bebe a little look at what Manchester United's all about. I thought he responded very well," Phelan told MUTV.

"There were fleeting moments of pace and power, and he got a little bit excited now and again. But it's important that players like him get these opportunities."
