Charlie Savage is claiming his first goal for Manchester United at under-23 level.
But he has a tough job to convince everybody the goal was his. Even his own teammates are not buying it.
Savage, 18, started for United in the EFL Trophy away at League Two side Bradford City.
He played a key role in breaking the deadlock after a corner broke to him on the edge of the box.
Savage fired the shot towards goal and it was heading five yards wide before it struck defender Yann Songo’o and deflected into the back of the net.
Savage is claiming the goal, celebrating the strike as his own…
You can’t blame Savage for trying to claim the goal. At just 18, the central midfielder and Wales youth international is trying to make a name for himself.
Last season he scored three goals for the under-18s and netted for Wales under-19s during the recent international break.
But it is safe to say his teammates are not having it, despite Savage’s protestations…
His dad Robbie Savage disagreed and told him the goal was a ‘great strike’.
The 3-0 win gives United a chance of qualifying for the knockout phases of the EFL Trophy.
Lincoln City top the group on six points with United in second on three points.
United’s remaining game is against Sunderland, and Hannibal will be eligible to return for that fixture after serving his suspension last night.
