Robbie Savage has taken to social media to post an emotional message reacting to his son, Charlie Savage, officially leaving Manchester United.

Yesterday, Manchester United officially announced the departure of Charlie Savage. The 20-year-old has moved to Reading permanently on a four-year deal.

He spent last season on loan at Forest Green Rovers, where he had a decent loan spell. He then returned to the Red Devils for pre-season, even captaining the side against Leeds United – in what now looks like a bit of a parting gift from the club.

Understandably, Savage is probably gutted to be leaving his boyhood club. Notably even more gutted is his dad, Robbie Savage, who took to socials to show his disappointment.

Robbie Savage on Charlie Savage departure

Taking to Twitter, Savage Sr responded to Manchester United’s farewell Tweet to the 20-year-old with the following statement.

“Thank you for the 15 years. The 243rd academy graduate to play for 1st team out of 246. He fulfilled his dream, we as a family can’t thank you enough.”

It’s clear to see that Savage desperately wanted to see his son succeed at the club, given the sheer amount of time he’s spent in Manchester.

Nevertheless, it’s time for a new chapter for Charlie… that’ll probably do him the world of good. The be-all and end-all is that he needs game time, which he simply will not get at the moment with the Red Devils.

Reading are going through a bit of a rebuild, having been relegated to League 1, so it’s the perfect club for Savage to make his mark at.

There is a potential buyback clause for the youngster, in case he does make it big – so it may not be the last time we see him at Old Trafford.

However, in the meantime, we wish Charlie the best in his future endeavours!
