Manchester United flop Bebe left his shooting boots at home after a fan highlighted his shocking shots in his brief cameo for Rayo Vallecano.
The 31-year-old Portuguese midfielder was subbed on in the 74th minute in place of Alvaro Garcia Rivera during Rayo’s La Liga’s clash against Real Sociedad on Sunday.
However, the man who was once tipped as Cristiano Ronaldo’s replacement at United failed to make an impact during his second-half cameo.
Bebe’s long-range shots against Sociedad were compiled into a clip by a Twitter user, with the Rayo player failing to hit the target on every attempt.

“Just another day in the office for Bebe,” one Twitter user wrote.
Someone else posted: “This man still plays professional football in one of the top [five] leagues in the world.”
And a third added: “I really want to know what was going through his mind for him to attempt to shoot from here.”
While a fourth said: “My head would be on Jupiter if I was his teammate.”
A fifth tweeted: “He’s definitely shouting ‘ROONEY’ as he takes every shot.”
United signed Bebe for around £7m from Portuguese side Vitoria de Guimaraes in 2010, but he failed to make his mark during his ill-fated spell at Old Trafford.
The former Portugal Under-21 international was loaned out to Besiktas, Rio Ave and Pacos de Ferreira before he was sold to Benfica in 2014.
Bebe was initially loaned out to Rayo in 2015 during his time with Benfica, but he returned to the La Liga club on a second loan spell in 2018 when he was signed for Eibar.
The former Benfica player made his move permanent to Rayo after his second loan spell, with Bebe currently under contract until 2022.
Despite his failed stint at United and not living up to the ‘new Cristiano Ronaldo’ tag, Bebe compared himself to the Juventus superstar in a 2015 interview.
He told Spanish newspaper Diario AS: “[Didier] Drogba, but also Cristiano because he’s Portuguese.
“I have the same way of running, and the same shooting style; he’s definitely a favourite.”
Mikel Oyarzabal converted from the spot-kick in the second half to seal a 1-0 win for Sociedad against Rayo at the Reale Arena.
