Ex-Premier League star Robbie Savage’s son Charlie has signed his first professional contract with Manchester United. Robbie began his career at Old Trafford 30 years ago.
Savage Jnr will hope to go one better than his old man at Old Trafford. Charlie, the 17-year-old, revealed the news on Twitter.
“Delighted to have signed my first professional contract Man Utd,” he wrote. Charlie, who joined the United academy in July 2019, has represented Wales at the under-17 level.
The central midfielder has scored two goals and provided a further five assists in his 17 outings. Speaking this week, he revealed he aspires to break into United’s first team.
“The main inspiration for me is Scott — he’s the best with us. He comes over to talk to us. He had it difficult in the youth team,” he told the Sun. “He didn’t play many matches but he just kept going and he proved it’s not always the standout players who make the first team.
“Sometimes it’s the players who might have had a back seat but they keep pushing and pushing. Scott, Marcus Rashford and also Brandon Williams all inspire us to improve and move forward.”
